The group focuses on physics-based machine learning and signal processing mostly using just weak noise as a source. We have demonstrated this in ocean acoustics, seismology, and radar. For more details see Publications.

I am teaching ECE228/SIO228 Machine learning for physical applications every spring quarter, in 2018 (72 graduate students), 2019 (171 graduate students), 2020 (245 graduate students). The class is part of the ECE data science curriculum.
I taught ECE285/SIO209 Machine learning for physical applications in the spring quarter 2017 (64 graduate students).

Peter visited China in September 2015, mostly staying at University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei working with Professor Huajian Yao . He also gave talks at Institute of Acoustics, State Key Laboratory of Acoustics in Beijing hosted by Professor ZHANG Renhe. and at Institute of Geophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences,in Wuhan hosted by Professor Sidau Ni.


Peter was in Antarctica November 2014, and Zhao Chen and Anja Diez followed in Antarctica November 2015.
