Ted Batchman, professor emeritus of electrical engineering, served as Dean of the College of Engineering for 13 years (1995 to 2008).
His research focused on opto-electrics. He is a Fellow Member of the American Society for Engineering Education and a Fellow of the IEEE.
Emeritus Associate Professor
Jim Henson earned his Ph.D. at the University of Arkansas in 1991. His research interests focused on radar systems, image and signal processing, and communications systems. He held appointments at Orlando Aerospace, Kirkland Airforce Base and the Sierra Nevada Corporation in addition to his work as a professor at the University of Nevada, Reno.
Bruce Johnson is Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering. His degrees are in physics from Bates College (B.S.), University of New Hampshire (M.S.) and University of Missouri (Ph.D.).
He worked for General Electric for seven years doing applied research on solid state image intensifiers and light emitting diodes. His research areas at the University of Nevada, Reno are in electronics and electromagnetic including electromagnetic compatibility. His most recent activity involved developing a prototype eyeglass based miniaturized electronic control and camera imaging circuit for retinal tracking for EyeCom Corporation of Reno.
Dr. Johnson served as Department Chair of Electrical Engineering for nine years. He was twice appointed by President Carter to the United States Metric Board where he served on the research committee. He was National President of Eta Kappa Nu, the Electrical Engineering Honor Society and established a student chapter at UNR. Dr. Johnson was also active in IEEE serving as Region 6 student activities coordinator and chair of the Northern Nevada Section of IEEE.
John Kleppe earned a bachelor's and master's degree in electrical engineering from the University of Nevada, Reno and a Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis.
His research and teaching responsibilities included courses in acoustics, advanced control theory, nonlinear systems, digital systems, communications, network theory and radar systems.
He is an experienced product design engineer and has managed two small companies from ideas to the marketplace.
He has extensive experience in the design and developmetn of acoustic pyrometers and related systems, and his recent research focuses on underwater projects involving remotely operated vehicles.
Nelson Publicover earned his Ph.D. from McGill University in Montreal and his M.S. and B.Sc. from Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia. Dr. Publicover's research focuses on biophysics of muscle cells, mathematical modeling of electrical activity in syncytial tissues, high-rate flourescence imaging, near-field and total internal reflectance microscopy, biosensors and biomedical instrument design. Dr. Publicover also served on the biomedical engineering faculty.
