Ron BoltonAdjunct Scientist
Ron Bolton was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, in 1950 and grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He received the B.E. (1972) and M.Sc. (1978) degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. His M.Sc. work was in the area of pattern recognition of handwritten sounding values on hydrographic charts. This work was performed under contract to the United States Navy.
From 1978-1983, Ron worked on his Ph.D. part time at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. His work involved designing an Electrocardiogram (ECG) recognition system capable of real-time arrythmia analysis of ECGs. He obtained his Ph.D. in 1983.
Ron is currently an Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan and an Adjunct Scientist at Telecommunications Research Laboratories (TRLabs) in Saskatoon. His research interests include VLSI and ASIC design, Multiple-Valued Logic (MVL), and DSP applications to biomedical signal processing. He has co-authored a number of papers on these topics.
Professor Bolton is a Member of the IEEE and is currently the IEEE Student Branch Counsellor for the University of Saskatchewan. He is also a Registered Professional Engineer in Saskatchewan. Ron has a number of hobbies, the most serious of which are being an avid golfer and running Professional Special System Technologies, Inc. (a custom software/hardware design company).
