B.S., Materials Science & Engineering, University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, 2013


I grew up in Helenville, WI, a small town that is halfway between Milwaukee and Madison. I went to high school in Fort Atkinson, WI. I earned my undergraduate degree in Materials Science & Engineering at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.

Summary of Activities/Interests

I have yet to publish material; however, I briefly worked with Russell Holmes (University of Minnesota) in research of organic LEDs and with Mark Wistey (Notre Dame) in preliminary computer modeling of core-shell devices.

Outside of academia, I am a musician. I specialize in piano, but I have played French horn and organ and have participated in handbell and vocal choirs.


Best Paper Award Won at Cybersecurity Conference

March 11, 2019

NDEE graduate student Joseph Loof won an award for the Best Cyber R&D Paper at Resilience Week In his paper, Loof addresses the problem of frequency hopped signal classification in a propagation environment with multi-path. He explains his approach towards signal classification–using unconventional methods that, instead of seeing multi-path as a hinderance, leverage it to enable signal discrimination.
