Biography

Biography

Dr. Devarajan earned his BSEE and MSEE from IIT, Madras, India in 1973 and 1975 respectively. He worked at Lockheed Martin, Grand Prairie, TX from 1979-1990, where he was the Technical Project Manager for TOPSCENE, a real time mission rehearsal system. At LMCO, he was one of the pioneers of Softcopy Photogrammetry development, which eventually became Digital Photogrammetry. In 1990, he joined UT Arlington, where he continues to be a Professor of Electrical Engineering. His research interests over the years have been Digital Communications, Flight Simulation, Medical Simulation, LiDar applications, Computer Vision and most recently, Deep Learning. The underlying technologies that contributed to these applications have been Digital Image/Signal Processing, Computer Vision, Neural Netwoks, DIgital Photogrammetry and Lidargrammetry.

      MTS brings Tamil culture from South India to the Dallas Ft. Worth metropolitan area (usually referred to locally as the Metroplex). I am a past Executive Committee member and a President of this organization which runs around 10 programs a year (literary, musical, dramatic and social programs) involving adults and children. Several hundred people of this area attend each of these programs. This organization helps spread awareness of Tamil culture and helps the new immigrant children with their identity as productive members of the American society while being cognizant of their heritage.

      Indian Fine Arts Academy (IFAA)
      IFAA is to North Texas what IMACS is to UTA. The intent of IFAA is to bring and expose to the N.Texas audiences, the rich classical music and dance of India. This organization conducts classical music and dance programs featuring some of the best musicians of India at approximately one a month to which all are welcome. In addition, IFAA also promotes the local talent in special programs. These programs are held typically at the Dallas Museum of Arts in downtown Dallas. IFAA requests and receives some financial help from the city of Dallas as well. I have been an executive committee member of the organization. Now I have been elected the President for the 2007-09 term. The most satisfying aspect of this role, once again is that this organization brings Indians and Americans together in to an environment of mutual learning and respect. I have been elected to be a Trustee of IFAA for 2009-2010.
