Jason Corso
Associate Professor

PhD, Computer Science, 2005
The Johns Hopkins University

Jason Corso’s main research thrust is high-level computer vision and its relationship to human language, robotics and data science.  He focuses primarily on problems in video understanding such as video segmentation, activity recognition, and video-to-text. Jason is the recipient of an ARO Young Investigator Award and an NSF CAREER Award. He is a member of the DARPA Computer Science Study Group. Jason joins ECE from the State University of New York (SUNY), Buffalo, where he has been an Associate Professor.

Vijay Subramanian
Associate Professor

PhD, Electrical Engineering, 1999
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Vijay Subramanian conducts research in the areas of in social networks, network economics, random graphs, communication networks, information theory, stochastic modeling, and applied probability. During the years 1999-2006, he worked for Motorola in the Networks Business Sector. He was a Research Fellow at the National University of Ireland from 2006-2010, and a visiting researcher at LIDS, MIT during the summer of 2010. He joins ECE from Northwestern University, where he has been a Research Assistant Faculty.

Leung Tsang

PhD, Electrical Engineering, 1976
Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Leung Tsang conducts research in applied electromagnetics, particularly in the area of environmental remote sensing. He has served as President of IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, and Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing. He is the co-author of 4 books: Theory of Microwave Remote Sensing, and Scattering of Electromagnetic Waves, vols. 1, 2 and 3. Prof. Tsang received the Pecora Award, and the IEEE Electromagnetics Award. He joins ECE from the University of Washington, where he was a former Department Chair.

Louise Willingale
Assistant Professor

PhD, Plasma Physics, 2007
Imperial College, London

Louise Willingale specializes in laser-driven ion acceleration, relativistic laser propagation through underdense and near-critical density plasmas, and uses proton radiography to study electric and magnetic fields generated during the laser-plasma interactions. She joins ECE from the U-M Department of Nuclear Engineering & Radiological Sciences, where she is also a member of the High Field Science group in the Center for Ultrafast Optical Science.
