Mohamad H. Hassoun received the BS, MS, and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Wayne State University (WSU), Detroit, Michigan, in 1981, 1982, and 1986, respectively. He is a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Wayne State University, and served as Interim Chair in 94/95. He founded the Computation and Neural Networks Laboratory which performs research in the field of artificial neural networks, machine learning, and pattern recognition. He has developed a sequence of courses on artificial neural networks: Artificial Neural Systems I (ECE 512) for senior level undergraduate students, Artificial Neural Systems II (ECE 712) for beginning graduate students, and Advanced Artificial Neural Systems (ECE 812) for advanced graduate students. He has also been active in curriculum development and has introduced a new freshman design course based on Lego robotics systems.

Dr. Hassoun has served as Associate Editor and reviewer for a number of technical journal. He is currently the Co-Editor-in-Chief of Neural Processing Letters, as of January 1998. He served on the program committees of several international conferences on neural networks. He has published numerous papers and book chapters in the areas of optical computing and artificial neural networks.

Dr. Hassoun has received a National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award in 1990. He has received a number of teaching awards at Wayne State University including the President's Award for Excellence in Teaching. He is the editor of the book: Associative Neural Memories: Theory and Implementations (Oxford University Press, 1993). He is also the author of the graduate textbook entitled Fundamentals of Artificial Neural Networks (MIT Press, 1995).
