Dr. Christopher M. Kreucher's Home Page Welcome to Chris Kreucher's homepage. I can be reached at ckreuche at umich.edu.

My current research areas include multisensor fusion, nonlinear filtering, multitarget tracking, and sensor management. I have a particular interest in applying these approaches to real data, including multistatic radar, passive acoustics, and EO.

From September 1998 until August 2002, I was an adjunct lecturer in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Michigan - Dearborn, where I taught ECE 210, ECE 273, ECE 365, ECE 460, and ECE 500 at one time or another. Students are directed to these links which contain solutions to old quizzes, exams, homeworks, and lab assignments.
