Deborah Ellen Goshorn 

Summer 2010


Deborah Goshorn has been an engineer and scientist for the US Navy for the past six years. Deborah spent four years at SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific as an engineer and computer scientist for various projects including DSP rapid prototyping for mitigating interference in various SATCOMs and statistical analysis for serially correlated time series data and artificial intelligence systems. Deborah spent this year as a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Information Sciences at Naval Postgraduate School, as Chief Engineer of the USMC sponsored RapidPro VIRT effort. The previous two year, Deborah spent as a Faculty Research Associate in Modeling Virtual Environments Simulation (MOVES) Institute at Naval Postgraudate School, researching computer vision techniques for US Militatry systems that require posture recognitions and sequential, syntactical models for posture recognition error recovery. Deborah is an instructor for courses in Systems Engineering at Naval Postgraduate School. Deborah is also Adjunct Faculty at Monterey Peninsula College in Statistics. Deborah, as a SMART scholar, completed her PhD in Computer Science from University of California, San Diego spring 2010 with her dissertation title, The Systems Engineering of a Net-Centric Distributed Intelligent System of Systems for Robust Human Behavior Classification. Deborah also has her MS in Statistics, MEng in Electrical and Computer Engineering, BS in Computer Engineering, and BA in Applied Mathematics, all from UCSD.
