In 1989, Dr. Joseph Evans joined the faculty at the University of Kansas (KU), where he is now a Professor of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science. He has been involved in a variety of networking projects while at KU, ranging from the MAGIC gigabit networking testbed, the ACTS ATM Internet, and the Rapidly Deployable Radio Network projects to a collaborative effort with the KU School of Education to deliver K-12 educational resources over the Internet. Dr. Evans spent the 1996-1997 academic year on sabbatical at Cambridge University and Olivetti & Oracle Research Laboratory in Cambridge, England, working in the area of mobile computing and communications systems. In 1991 he participated in the Air Force Summer Research Program at Hanscom AFB.

Prior to joining the University of Kansas, he held a postdoctoral position in the Network Systems Research Department of AT&T Bell Laboratories in Holmdel, New Jersey, where he was involved in the design of a high performance integrated network. While at Princeton, he was awarded an AT&T Bell Laboratories Graduate Fellowship for 1984-1988; during this time, he was also a part time employee of Bell Labs, working in the field of speech processing algorithms for packet networks.

His current research interests include high speed (gigabit) networks, special-purpose computer architecture, adaptive signal processing, digital speech processing, and VLSI implementations.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
