Steven L. Grant
I was born in Kansas
City, Missouri and
was raised on a small farm near there. As a boy
growing up on a farm I learned what hard work was at an early age (its physical
labor) and decided to avoid it as much as possible. So, I went to University of Missouri--Rolla and got a B.S. in
electrical engineering. I then joined Bell
Labs and went to Caltech on the OYOC (one
year on campus) program to get my M.S. in E.E. in 1981. In 1983, I
indulged a youthful indiscretion and went to ITT Defense Communications
Division to do some speech coding research. After two years I returned to
AT&T via what was then called AT&T Information Systems, where I did
more speech coding research. In 1987 I transferred to the DSP Development
department of what is now Lucent Micro Electronics to do DSP32 and DSP16
applications engineering. In 1990 I went to Lucent Network Wireless and in
1991 to Bell
Labs’ Acoustics Research where I later became supervisor. During my
employ at Bell Labs, I received my Ph.D. in
Electrical Engineering from Rutgers University in 1994. In 2002 I went to the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln
Laboratory where I did research on nonlinear equalizers and active SONAR. Finally, in 2004, I came home to Missouri and I am here
again at UMR in Rolla, this time as a professor in the electrical and computer
main interests include SONAR, nonlinear equalization, acoustic echo
cancellation, and efficient and fast converging/tracking adaptive filters.
While I enjoy theory, I also have a proclivity for building things. I
like to be surrounded by spectrum analyzers, oscilloscopes, signal generators,
and PC's stuffed with DSP cards.
When I was at Bell
Labs I often demonstrated a Stereo Teleconferencing System my group and I had
built. One time our guest was the King
Here are some pictures of that visit.

Jacob Benesty and
I were the co-chairs of the 6'th International Workshop on Acoustic Echo and
Noise Control (IWAENC'99) which was held
September 1999 in Pocono Manor, PA.
From this, we co-edited a book, Acoustic
Signal Processing for Telecommunication,
is now available from the Kluwer
