Mission Statement

Brett Borden
Professor of Physics
Ph.D. Physics, University of Texas at Austin, 1986

Dr. Borden joined the faculty of NPS in 2002, after 22 years as a Research Physicist at The Naval Weapons Center in China Lake, CA. His research has centered on inverse problems with particular concentration in radar-based imaging and remote sensing. He is a fellow of the Institute of Physics, a member of the editorial board for the journal Inverse Problems, and received China Lake's TD award for Technical Achievement in 1995.
