Dr. Willis Troy


Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Hartung Hall 304A

Prior to arriving at Anderson University, Dr. Troy was working on his Ph.D. at Baylor University.  His dissertation focused on the measurement and classification of human motion in open space and foliaged environments using radar.

Dr. Troy’s primary research interest remains centered on the application of radar. Currently, Dr. Troy is investigating human gait parameters with Ball State’s School of Kinesiology. However, Dr. Troy is also interested in other areas of applied electromagnetics such as electric motors.

Dr. Troy is married to Xiuli ‘Hope’ Troy who he met during graduate school. They have a two-year-old that keeps them very busy. During the summer of 2018, they lived for two months in China with Hope’s family.  Dr. Troy had the opportunity to explore mountains and experience a very different way of life than that to which he is accustomed. They all look forward to returning, and he hopes he can learn enough Mandarin to communicate in the future.

Dr. Troy came to Anderson University because he wants to be a part of the unique facilities and resources offered to the students. Dr. Troy has served at Anderson University since 2017.

Dr. Troy is a member of the following professional organizations

  • Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
  • American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE)
  • American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES)
  • International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE)
