IEEE Style Bio

Dennis O. Ogbe (S'13, M'20) received the B.S. degree (with honors) in electrical engineering from Tennessee Technological University in 2014 and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Purdue University in 2020. He is currently employed as a Signal Analysis Engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA. Between 2020 and early 2021, he was a Postdoctoral Associate at the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech, followed by a stint as a Telecom Software and SDR Engineer at Lynk, a satellite startup in Falls Church, VA. During the summer of 2016, he was an R&D Summer Trainee at Nokia Bell Labs in Arlington Heights, IL. He is an alumnus of all three phases (2017-2019) of the DARPA Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2). His research interests lie at the intersection of communication theory, signal processing, and computer engineering. Dr. Ogbe has been inducted into Eta Kappa Nu and Tau Beta Pi.

EEWeb Interview

I was the featured engineer at EEWeb in August 2016. Check out my interview with them here.

Interests

HKN

I was inducted into Eta Kappa Nu at my undergraduate institution, Tennessee Tech University (Epsilon Rho Chapter). I have since held multiple officer positions at the world's greatest chapter, Beta Chapter! My most memorable experience as active member of HKN Beta was the 2017 edition of our annual Student Leadership Conference which we organized. It was an absolute blast!

Basketball

I was a member of the Men's Basketball Team at Tennessee Tech, playing in the Ohio Valley Conference from 2010-2014. According to this source, I appeared in 123 games during this time, averaging about 7 points per game. My senior year I was selected for the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team. I have lots of positive memories from my time at Tech and I could probably fill this entire page with them, but I will keep it short. This is me in my very first college game, playing North Carolina State University in Raleigh on Nov. 12, 2010:

Dennis Ogbe portrait

And this is a recap video from this peculiar game against Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville, where I had to finish the game bandaged up after getting hit on the head:

My brother Kenneth Ogbe finished his college career at Utah Valley University, averaging a fantastic 10.6 points per game with a 3FG percentage of over 40%! Since 2018, he has been playing professionally in the German BBL (highest level of competition in Germany), first for ALBA Berlin (where they won the German Cup and National Championship in 2020) and currently for Brose Bamberg.

This website

This website is being held together by mostly spit, duct tape, and a few lines of Emacs Lisp. On my hard drive it starts out as a loose collection of Org-mode files which are then—with quite a bit of massaging—converted to static HTML. This blog post outlines some of the ideas behind this, but some of the text might be outdated at this point. Feel free to send me an e-mail if you want to chat about the set-up.

Update January 02 2019: After my previous hosting provider went belly-up (apparently this is a thing that happens a lot…), I switched to hosting this website using a VPS from RamNode and the free tier of the CloudFlare CDN. I was able to get this up and running in less than an hour after realizing that my hosting provider went down indefinitely, thus I can only recommend this low-cost option. Maybe one day I can get a quick blog post going about how to go about this.
