Dr. Neil Weston's appointment serves as a way to broaden the academic and research programs at the University of South Florida by capitalizing from his 31-year career at NOAA (Office of Coast Survey & the National Geodetic Survey). His focus will be to collaborate on research activities related to GNSS/GPS positioning, geophysical phenomena affecting land/ocean interfaces, data visualization, digital signal processing, and modeling. Dr. Weston has contributed by advising/mentoring graduate students, giving invited talks/seminars, promoting OCS, NOS and NOAA scientific and technological endeavors, and strengthening high-level collaborations between academic and international communities.

Dr. Weston received his doctorate from Catholic University of America in 2007 in biomedical engineering and physics, and has master's degrees from Johns Hopkins University in physics (sensor systems) and the University of South Florida in physics (laser optics and quantum electronics). He also holds positions as a Science/Technical Advisor with the U.S. State Department and as a Science Advisor with the United Nations.
