Lalit K. Mestha received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Bath, England, U.K., in 1985.
He is a Research Fellow at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC East) in Webster, NY, USA.
He has broad background and experience in spectral imaging, signal processing, advanced control theory and systems. Since 2011, he has been working on wearable and video-based low cost sensing systems for health monitoring at wide range of wavelengths. He has 340+ technical publications including issued patents (205), pending applications (78) and papers (66), a coauthored book “Control of Color Imaging Systems”, and two book chapters. He taught over 24 graduate courses. He created and delivered numerous controls and sensing technologies that are now deployed in particle accelerator systems in Fermilab, KEK, CERN and in imaging products (iGen3/4, DocuColor series and Xerox Color 800/1000 presses with spectral sensors developed and marketed by Xerox). These technologies have generated large revenues to Xerox.
Dr. Mestha received the 2014 Engineer of the Year Award by the Rochester Engineering Society.
