About the Author

Kenny Hunt got a pretty quick start at signal processing and engineering. He built his first crystal radio set at the age of 11 so that he could listen to St. Louis Cardinals baseball games at night hiding under the covers of his bed. Although he aspired to become a famous artist, economic realities and the possession of a disadvantaged skill set pushed him in another direction. He went on to obtain a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville and confesses to skipping classes in favor of Thursday afternoon Cardinal baseball games at Bush Stadium. After working as an electrical engineer for seven years, he went on to acquire a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Iowa. Dr. Hunt now teaches in the undergraduate Computer Science program as well as the Masters of Software Engineering program at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.
