CASA Users Committee

Current Committee Membership

  • Adam Avison (EU, 03/2018): 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, 03/2018): 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:
  • Alessandra Corsi (NA, 04/2019): Alessandra Corsi is Associate professor in the Physics and Astronomy Department at Texas Tech University. Her research focuses on time-domain astrophysics with emphasis on the radio follow-up of gamma-ray bursts, supernovae, and gravitational-wave events. She is a frequent user of the Jansky VLA and of CASA. Email:
  • Chris DePree (NA, 08/2017): 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:
  • Hauyu Baobab Liu (NA, 04/2019): Assistant Research Fellow, Academia Sinica Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Taipei, Taiwan.HBL is interested in star-formation in general, and also observed the molecular ISM at the center of the Milky Way. Email:
  • A-Ran Lyo (EA, 07/2018): Senior Researcher at the EA ALMA Regional Center Korean-node based on the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI). My research interest is in the low mass star formation using from optical to radio observations. 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, 2017; 4 year term): I am a professor in Kagoshima University, Japan, working on mm/submm study of star formation with SMA and ALMA. Email:
  • Ilse van Bemmel (EU, 2017): 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:
