Dr. Moorhead is a distinguished professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Mississippi State University and the director of two research institutes at MSU: The Geosystems Research Institute (GRI) and the Northern Gulf Institute (NGI). He is on the Board of Directors of the IEEE Computer Society’s Technical Committee on Visualization and Graphics, having served as Chair, Vice-Chair for Conferences (twice), and Conference Chair over the past 20 years. He has received the Career Achievement Award and the Outstanding Engineering Research Award from the MSU Bagley College of Engineering. He has lead visualization research and development efforts in support of many geospatial problems (physical oceanography, disposal of dredged materials, coastal / severe weather, flooding, etc.). After receiving his PhD in 1985 from North Carolina State University, Dr. Moorhead was a Research Staff Member in the Image Technologies Group at IBM’s Research Center in New York before joining MSU in 1989. His research has migrated from image processing to visualization of large computer simulations to most recently using unmanned aerial systems for advancing agriculture performance and understanding the environment.
