Dr. Dean's interests in embedded systems research include:

Dr. Dean received his BS EE from the University of Wisconsin in 1991 and then went to Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh for graduate studies with Dr. John Shen. He completed his MS ECE in 1993 after studying computer architecture and researching software-implemented control-flow error detection. After his MS he went to work at United Technologies Research Center in Connecticut, where he analyzed, simulated and designed communication networks and system architectures for jet engines, elevators, cars and building climate control systems. He also designed, programmed and built prototypes for several automotive applications. Supported by grants from UTRC, he resumed his PhD studies at CMU in 1997, introducing software thread integration for embedded systems. He applied this research at UTRC during annual visits. In 2000 he received his PhD in ECE, and then joined the ECE faculty of NCSU. He has performed design reviews of embedded systems for industry since 2001.
