Geoffrey C. Orsak received the B.S.E.E., M.E.E., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from Rice University, Houston, TX in 1985, 1986, and 1990, respectively.

He is currently Associate Dean of the School of Engineering at Southern Methodist University, where he is also Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering. In addition, he is Director of The Infinity Project, a partnership between SMU, Texas Instruments, leading national universities, and high schools aimed at bringing advanced technology and engineering education to the high school classroom. Prior to coming to SMU, he was Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at George Mason University, Fairfax, VA, where he also served as Presidential Fellow. His research interests are in the area of wireless communications, information theory, and statistical signal processing. In addition to this work, he has also been active in the use of high technology for novel forms of pedagogy. In 1995, together with Professor Delores M. Etter of the University of Colorado at Boulder, he cofounded SPEC–The Signal Processing Education Consortium, a geographically distributed consortium of faculty whose aim is to advance DSP education at the undergraduate level. He has been a past recipient of the NSF Research Initiation Award 1991-1994 and is a member of Eta Kappa Nu.

During 1998-1999, Dr. Orsak served as a member of the Defense Science Study Group, a program "that introduces outstanding young scientists and engineers to challenges facing national security," which is sponsored by DARPA and the Institute for Defense Analyses.

From 1981 to 1985 he worked as a Research Physicist at US Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, DC. His areas of research were optical signal and image processing systems. From 1985 to 1990 he was a Senior Principal Staff Member at BDM Corporation, McLean, VA, where he headed a group in Optical Computing. His research there concerned optical interconnects and multistage switching networks and optical neural network implementations. Since 1990 he has been an Associate Professor with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, George Mason University, Fairfax, VA. His research at GMU has been in the areas of fiber optic signal processing and the analysis of fundamental limitations in optical interconnection networks. At George Mason University, he was a joint developer of a freshman introductory course for electrical engineering students, which focused on information technology aspects of EE. He is currently developing a new course on the principles of information technology, which is aimed at non-science/engineering major students and is a part of the information technology minor at George Mason University.

Dr. Athale has been awarded several patents in optical processing and computing. He is a cofounder of HoloSpex, Inc. and a co-inventor of HoloSpex glasses, the first consumer product that is based on far-field holograms. He was elected Fellow of the Optical Society of America in 1989.
