Jennifer Burg • Professor of Computer Science at Wake Forest University

Jennifer Burg is a Professor of Computer Science at Wake Forest University. Having received Master’s degrees in English and French at the University of Florida, she returned to school after eight years of teaching to re-educate herself in computer science.  She received her PhD in computer science from the University of Central Florida in 1991. Her research is in the areas of digital media and curriculum development for interdisciplinary courses.

Her textbook, The Science of Digital Media, published in 2009 by Pearson/Prentice-Hall, covers digital imaging, audio, video, and multimedia programming. Her second book, Digital Sound and Music: Concepts, Applications, and Science, co-authored by Jason Romney and Eric Schwartz, was published by Franklin Beedle in 2017. Burg’s interdisciplinary work creates a bridge between digital signal processing and a mathematical/algorithmic approach to music creation and manipulation.
