Michael C. Roggemann is a professor emeritus of electrical engineering at Michigan Tech. He is coauthor of the book “Imaging Through Turbulence” and has authored or coauthored over sixty journal articles and over fifty conference papers. Roggemann is a member of the IEEE, and is a fellow of both the Optical Society of America and SPIE—The International Society for Optical Engineering. He was also briefly affiliated with the Boeing Corporation, where he served as a senior research scientist from 2002 to 2005; he was also a technical fellow at Boeing. Roggeman was an associate professor of engineering physics at the Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson AFB, in Ohio from 1992 to 1997. He is an honorably retired Air Force Officer at the rank of major.

Roggemann performed his undergraduate work at Iowa University, graduating in 1982 with a BS in Electrical Engineering. He performed graduate work at the Air Force Institute of Technology, completing an MS in Electrical Engineering in 1983, and a PhD in 1989. Roggemann was an electro-optics program manager at Wright Laboratories, Wright-Patterson AFB, in Ohio, and an imaging researcher at the Phillips Laboratory, Kirtland AFB, in New Mexico. His present research interests include imaging and beam projection through atmospheric turbulence, optical remote-sensing system design and analysis, and signal and image processing.
