Webert Montlouis, President

Webert MontlouisWebert Montlouis received his BS, MS and Ph.D. degrees in

Electrical Engineering from Northeastern University, Boston MA.

After graduation he joined the System Architecture, Design and

Integration Directorate (SADID), a division of the Raytheon

Company, where he is also the co-Chair of the Radio

Communication Propagation and Atmospheric Physics Technical

Interest Group. At Raytheon, he is involved with developing

System Architecture, Concept of Operations (CONOPS) and

performance analysis for phased array radar systems. Prior to his

doctoral studies, he worked as senior member of technical staff for many research and development

companies. He also worked as a technical consultant for many consulting firms primarily specializing

in developing ASIC and FPGA for communication products.

Dr. Montlouis joined the faculty at Northeastern University, Boston MA as a senior lecturer in 2007. He

is currently the chair of the external board of the National Science Foundation. Science, Technology,

Engineering, and Mathematics Talent Expansion Program (NSF STEP-UP). In this program, a

University Partnership is formed between Northeastern University and other colleges in the state of

Massachusetts to increase the number of students receiving degrees in STEM (Science, Technology,

Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines. He has also served as session chair at many IEEE

sponsored conferences.

Recently, Dr. Montlouis founded WEMSS Lab LLC. WEMSS Lab is a research and development

company with the vision to conduct innovative research to bring solutions to complex problems. He is

currently the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Scientist of the company. His activities include overall

management of the company, strategic and technical leadership, proposals writing, and leading the

pursuit to new business opportunities

Dr. Montlouis is a senior member of the IEEE where he is affiliated with the communications and

signal processing societies. His research interests are in the areas of Communications, Adaptive

Signal Processing, Robust Tracking and Localization, System-On-Chip implementation of complex

DSP and Communications algorithms, Wireless Communications, Biomedical Signal Processing,

Medical Image Processing, Networking and Antenna Array Signal Processing.

Pierre-Richard Jean Cornely, Public Relations

Pierre-Richard Jean CornelyPierre-Richard Jean Cornely received the B.S/M.S degree from

Northeastern University in 1989, and the M.S and Ph.D. degrees

from the University of Massachusetts, in 1993 and 1999, all in

Electrical Engineering.

Upon graduating in 1999, Dr. Cornely joined a startup company,

374’s Research Corporation, D.B.A. 374’s Electric Power

Corporation. As President and CEO of the corporation, Dr.

Cornely managed the day-to-day affairs of the corporation and

designed the first family of surf hydroelectric power conversion

systems currently in existence. At the beginning of 2004,

Dr. Cornely returned to investigating various research subjects from his core areas of expertise:

atmospheric modeling and its effects on signal propagation; signal processing and its applications.

Later that year, Dr. Cornely joined the systems engineering technical staff of the Raytheon Company

in Sudbury, Massachusetts, where he has been designing state of the art radar systems and


In addition, in collaboration with the Mathematics Department of the University of Massachusetts at

Lowell, Dr. Cornely has developed several iterative algorithms based on projection onto convex sets.

These algorithms play an important role in the formulation and solution of several important

problems in signal processing. Within the last four years, Dr. Cornely has developed a keen interest

in the inner workings of the human mind. As a result, he founded the Institute For Advanced Mind

Studies (IFAMS). The IFAMS is a unique institution that has proposed a new philosophy of human life

based on the recognition that an individual can accomplish anything he really desires, if he can

correctly and efficiently practice the philosophy of the mind.

Dr. Cornely is currently the Technical Director of Bayasssociates Power Systems, and the Director of

the Institute For Advanced Mind Studies. His current research interests include: Electrical Conversion

Systems; Physical Geography as it relates to Climatology & Atmospheric Weather Prediction;

Emission, Absorption & Ionospheric Tomography; Ionospheric Physics & Modeling; Signal & Image

Processing; Evolutionary Computation & Machine Learning and Mastering the basic functions of the

Human Mind.

Alfred Noel, Executive Director

Alfred Noel's formal education terminated in 1997 with a Ph. D. in pure

mathematics from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. Since 1998,

he has been on the mathematics faculty at the University of Massachusetts in

Boston.  His field of research is Representation Theory of Lie Groups, a

fundamental branch of mathematics with deep connections to physics and number

theory. Before joining the University of Massachusetts, he taught mathematics

and computer science for fourteen years at Northeastern University.  In addition,

Alfred worked as a software/research engineer for nine years in industry.

Lastly, Alfred served as webmaster for the HSS website from 1996 to 2008 and has been organizing

the HSS monthly seminars.
