Mike McLoughlin is the Vice President of Research for Zeteo Tech. He was most recently Chief Engineer for the Research and Exploratory Development Department, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. He was the Principal Investigator for the Revolutionizing Prosthetics Program (RP) and led efforts to transition RP related technologies to clinical and nonclinical applications. During his career, he has focused on the rapid development and demonstration of transformative technologies for national security applications including: brain machine interfaces, neuroprosthetics, human integrated robotics, biomedicine and biodefense. He led multiple chem/bio defense efforts at APL, including efforts to secure both government and commercial mail systems after the 2001 anthrax attack. He was also responsible for design and implementation of sensor networks to protect government facilities, bridging the gap between the scientific and operational community.
Mike began his career at APL in 1985 and developed advanced signal processing methods for the reduction of noise in sonar systems. From 1990 to 1995 he was a Division Director at Noise Cancelation Technologies, Inc. (NCT). NCT was an early stage technology company formed to commercialize Active Noise Control (ANC) for automotive, industrial and consumer applications.
Mike has BS and MS degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Delaware and teaches in the Engineering Management Graduate Program, Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering.
