Additional Information

Dr. Bari is a faculty member at Eastern Michigan University, presently implementing and coordinating the undergraduate program in Electronic Engineering Technology. In the fall of 1997 he defended his dissertation and earned his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Arkansas. The problem he chose for his research is the control of a stochastic, nonlinear and uncertain model using adaptive control systems, including a modified extended Kalman filter and neural networks. One of the results from his dissertation was published in the Proceedings of the IEEE Conference on Decision and Control in December 1997. Dr. Bari has eight years of teaching experience and several years of industrial experience as an electrical engineer. He has taught a broad range of electronics courses and is experienced in curriculum development. He also directed, and successfully completed, a project funded by NSF for establishing an Instrumentation and Calibration lab.
