About

Dr. Richard L. Espinola received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University in 1998, 2000, and 2005. His dissertation was on the fabrication and characterization of silicon photonics devices. Since 2005, he has been with the U.S. Army Night Vision & Electronic Sensors Directorate's Modeling and Simulation division, Sensor Performance branch. His research interests include modeling laser range gated sensors and developing the NVESD NVLRG performance model, turbulence degradation and mitigation for passive and active imaging, video compression, supporting terahertz imaging and modeling of THz sensors for the DARPA TIFT program, and silicon photonics. Dr. Espinola is the U.S. Army representative to the NATO SET-156 RTG-86 Modeling of Active EO-Imaging Systems technical group.
