Michael Morse was born in New York, received his B.S. and M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Tulane University in New Orleans in 1981 and 1982. He went on to get his Ph.D. at age 24 from Clemson University in South Carolina in 1985. After 18 long months in industry, Professor Morse joined the Electrical Engineering Faculty of Auburn University in 1987. During his first year as an academic he won both an NSF and IEEE initiation grant. (He declined the IEEE grant.) During his three years at Auburn he published on the topics of speech recognition from signals secondary to speech and electrical stimulation. At Auburn, Professor Morse advised five students to Master's degrees and developed a successful consultancy in the area of electric shock injury and electromechanical product failure. He has testified as an expert witness in both state and federal court on several occasions. In 1990 Professor Morse received…
