CASA Users Committee

Current Committee Membership

  • Ilse van Bemmel (EU): staff member at the Joint Institute for VLBI ERIC (JIVE). My scientific interest is in the life cycles of active galaxies. My technical interest is in calibration of VLBI data. JIVE is involved in CASA development for VLBI users, and I will represent the VLBI community. E-mail:
  • Chris DePree (NA): Chris De Pree is the Charles A. Dana Professor of Astronomy and Director of Bradley Observatory at Agnes Scott College. His research is focused on the early evolution of regions of high mass star formation in the Galaxy. Email:
  • Ximena Fernández (NA): NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey; frequent user of the VLA observing HI in galaxies across cosmic time. Email:
  • Daniel C. Jacobs (NA): Arizona State University; Observing Reionization and Dark Ages with 21cm line; CASA Background: I use CASA to commission new radio arrays like the Precision Array for Probing the Epoch of Reionization (PAPER), the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) and the Hydrogen Epoch of Reionization Array (HERA). We are developing new algorithms and pipelines to address challenges posed by these novel widefield, large N arrays. My focus on the committee is to represent the community of users who want to use CASA in new and interesting ways. Email:
  • Alexander Karim (EU): Staff member for observational cosmology at the Argelander-Institute for Astronomy (Bonn University, Germany); frequent user of sub-mm/radio interferometry incl. ALMA and the VLA (incl. large programs using full-band spectral scans and large-area continuum mosaics). Email :
  • Yi-Jehng Kuan (NA): Professor, Department of Earth Sciences, National Taiwan Normal University, Taipei, Taiwan; (sub)millimeter radio observations of star-forming regions, AGBs, solar system icy bodies and comets. Email:
  • Shigehisa Takakuwa (EA): I am a professor in Kagoshima University, Japan, working on mm/submm study
    of star formation with SMA and ALMA. Email:
  • David Wilner (NA): Astrophysicist (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Cambridge, MA USA); radio/millimeter/submillimeter observations of star and planet formation. Email:
  • Youngjoo Yun (EA): Staff member of Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI). Observing stellar masers of the evolved stars and developing the pipeline for the data reduction of KVN observations. Email:
