Dr. Jeffrey Mills joined IIT in 1987. His principal activities have been in electromagnetics and in digital logic design. He was an engineer at GTE from 1964 to 1987, and was responsible for design of hardware modules used in four generations of electronic telephone switching systems. He worked in the design of digital filters, including a statistical detection scheme for audio tones coded in PCM, which was the subject of his dissertation. Additionally, he provided support software for various computers.
Dr. Mills's area of specialization is electromagnetic compatibility, for which he has written a senior-level textbook. His current research interests include analysis of radiated and conducted VHF and UHF emissions from digital computing devices, and methods of suppression.
