Pamela (Feldman) Cosman (BS '87)

I've returned to being a regular professor of EE at UC San Diego after spending 3 years on the dark side as Associate Dean of the Jacobs School of Engineering. A highlight for 2016 was having my first children's book published (The Secret Code Menace, Ransom UK). It is a fictional story for ages 9-11 that teaches a little bit about error correction coding and other concepts from wireless communications. My research is mostly on video compression and wireless comm but I do some biomedical image processing and have even gotten pulled by STEM gender issues into doing some social science research! My oldest son Benjamin graduated from Caltech in 2014 in CS and is a grad student here at UCSD. Second son Rafael (23) got his CS degree from Stanford and is now a venture-backed entrepreneur. Third son Gilead (19) is a sophomore in CS at Cal State Channel Islands. Youngest son Ilan (14) is a high school freshman, and will hopefully break the pattern and do something other than CS. Please look me up if you come to San Diego!
