Biographical Sketch for John H. Cozzens
I received a BA in mathematics at Temple University in 1966, and my PhD (also in mathematics) at Rutgers University in 1969.
Before joining NSF, I was a Lead Scientist with the MITRE Corporation in Bedford MA, where I worked in a variety of areas. These included (algebraic) coding theory, residue number system arithmetic, detection and estimation, radar signal processing, network survivability, and automatic target recognition. Before that, I taught mathematics for 11 years at the college level. During that period, my research interests included (non)commutative ring theory, homological algebra, and differential algebra. My current research interests include detection and estimation theory, the application of algebraic methods to digital signal processing, and nonlinear optimization.
