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:
  • 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:
  • D.J. Pisano (NA, 04/2018): D.J. Pisano is a Professor and Chair 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:
  • Ruta Kale (IN, 2021): Ruta Kale is a staff member at the National Centre for Radio Astrophysics, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Pune, India. Her research focuses on non-thermal phenomena in clusters of galaxies and radio galaxies. She frequently uses the GMRT and the JVLA and has developed a CASA based pipeline for the Upgraded GMRT data reduction. Email:
  • Yoshimasa Watanabe (EA, 2021): Yoshimasa Watanabe is a staff member at the Shibaura Institute of Technology in Japan. Email:
  • Jihyun Kang (EA, 2021): Jihyun Kang is a Senior Researcher at the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute, interested in star formation in general using KVN, VLA, and ALMA. Email:
  • Olga Bayandina (EU, 2021): Olga Bayandina is a Support Scientist at the Joint Institute for VLBI ERIC (JIVE). She is involved in testing new CASA fringe-fitting features for the VLBI data, as well as in developing an EVN CASA calibration pipeline for the spectral line data. Olga's research is focused on the VLA and VLBI studies of cosmic masers associated with star formation regions. Email:
  • Adam Leroy (NA, 2021): Adam Leroy is an associate professor at Ohio State University. His research focuses on radio, millimeter, and infrared observations of galaxies and the interstellar medium using both spectral lines and continuum. He is a frequent user of both ALMA and the Very Large Array. Email:
