CASA Users Committee

Current Committee Membership

  • Adam Avison (EU, 03/2017): Adam Avison (EU): ALMA Support Scientist / Postdoctral Research Associate at the UK ALMA Regional Centre Node (Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, University of Manchester). I maintain and upgrade the ALMA Observation Support Tool (the online ALMA simulator) and my research interests are in the formation of high-mass stars within the Galaxy, using radio and mm/sub-mm observations. Email:
  • Michael Bietenholz (NA, 03/2017): Michael Bietenholz has a dual appointment at Hartebeesthoek Radio Astronomy Observatory in South Africa and York University in Canada.He's a frequent user of both the VLA and VLBI, observing mostly supernovae and supernova remnants. Email:
  • 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:
  • 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:
  • Cornelis Lang (NA, 03/2018): University of Iowa. Radio astronomy; x-ray astronomy; observational study of interstellar medium and galactic center. Email:
  • Se-Heon Oh (EA): I have been mainly working on resolved galaxy kinematics from spectroscopic galaxy surveys including but not limited to the following topics: Dark matter distribution in (dwarf) galaxies; Development of galaxy kinematics tools for the upcoming SKA pathfinders' surveys; Decomposition of multiple ISM components and their links to hydrodynamical processes in galaxies. Email:
  • D.J. Pisano (NA, 04/2018): D.J. Pisano is an Associate Professor of Physics & Astronomy at West Virginia University. His research involves studying galaxy formation and evolution primarily through observations of neutral hydrogen in and around galaxies in the local and distant universe using interferometers and single-dish telescopes around the world. 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:
