Greg Welch is a Research Professor in the Institute for Simulation & Training and the Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at The University of Central Florida, and the Department of Computer Science at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 1986 he received a degree in Electrical Technology from Purdue University (with Highest Distinction), and in 1996 a Ph.D. in Computer Science from UNC-Chapel Hill. Prior to UNC he worked on the Voyager Spacecraft Project at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and on airborne electronic countermeasures at Northrop-Grumman's Defense Systems Division. His current research interests include virtual and augmented reality, human tracking systems, 3D telepresence, computer vision, and stochastic estimation. He has co-authored over 50 publications in these areas, and is a co-inventor on multiple patents. He has served on numerous international program committees, co-chaired workshops and seminars, and is an Associate Editor for the journal Presence: Teleoperators and Virtual Environments. He maintains an internationally-recognized web site dedicated to the Kalman filter. He is a member of the IEEE Computer Society and ACM.
