Clarkson University President Tony Collins has announced that Edward S. Sazonov has been granted tenure and promoted from assistant professor to associate professor of electrical and computer engineering in the Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering.
Sazonov received his diploma in systems engineering diploma from Khabarovsk State University of Technology, Russia in 1993 and then continued his career in a number of academic and industrial positions. He obtained his master’s and Ph.D. degrees from West Virginia University in 1999 and 2002, respectively, and has been a faculty member in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Clarkson since 2003.
His research in the area of ambient intelligent systems focuses on applications of biomedical and rehabilitation engineering and applications of structural health monitoring, and involves tight integration of embedded and wearable computing platforms, wireless sensor networks and development of related signal processing, sensor fusion and pattern recognition methods.
Sazonov and his collaborators have received research grants totaling over $1.4 million from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, National Academies of Science, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and other funding sources. Sazonov is an author on 36 journal and conference publications, and has several pending patent applications.
His research on highway bridge sensors powered by vibration was highlighted in several national and international news media outlets, including PC Magazine, Mechanical Engineering, Material’s World, Science Daily and others. Sazonov has been invited to present his research at universities in other countries across the globe.
