Dr. Ross K. Snider
Associate Professor

Department of Electrical and
Computer Engineering

Montana State University



Expertise:
 
Reconfigurable Computing, Real-Time Systems, Signal Processing, Speech Recognition, Auditory and Visual Neuroscience
   
Background:   

Dr. Ross Snider joined the Montana State ECE faculty in August, 1999.  He holds a BSE degree from Walla Walla College, a MSEE from Michigan State University, and a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University all in Electrical Engineering. Dr. Snider also completed a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.

Interests:
His research and teaching interests take on a cross-disciplinary approach where he is interested in the intersection of biology, signal processing, and computer engineeing. In particular, he is interested in how the brain processes sensory information and how this knowledge can be used to develop intelligent computing systems using reconfigurable computing (FPGAs).

His specific interest in reconfigurable computing is the ability to craft a custom computer architecture that is optimal for the algorithm being implemented.

Dr. Snider is also involved with a startup where the aim is to speed up the identification of proteins from mass spectrometry data using reconfigurable computing (FPGAs). He is also developing a more robust algorithm to be used in denovo sequencing and find post-translational modifications (PTMs).
