  • Andre Manitius

    Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing

    Andrzej Manitius joined George Mason University in September 1988 as Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Manitius' research interests include mathematical aspects of control theory, including control of distributed parameter and delay systems, optimal control, optimization, numerical and computational methods in dynamical systems and control systems. He has published over 70 papers in his fields of interest, and held various editorial positions with several professional journals.
  • Instructor, Engineering Capstones, Volgenau

    Gino Manzo retired from a defense industry career (IBM, Loral, Lockheed-Martin, BAE Systems) in March, 2014. Before coming to Mason, Manzo worked as an adjunct professor at Virginia Tech and designed and taught their first two semester senior design capstones class. Degrees MS, Electrical Engineering, Cornell University BS, Electrical Engineering, Cornell University
  • Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing

    Brian L. Mark’s main research interests lie in the design, modeling and performance evaluation of communication networks and computer systems. He became a faculty member in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at George Mason University in 2000. Prior to joining Mason, he was a Research Staff Member at NEC Labs in Princeton, New Jersey and spent a year as a visiting researcher at Télécom Paristech in Paris, France.
  • Department Chair, Mechanical Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing

    Leigh McCue is an associate professor at George Mason University in the Mechanical Engineering Department. From 2015-2018 she was the executive director of the American Society of Naval Engineers. Prior to that, from December of 2004 through May of 2015, she was an assistant, then associate professor in Virginia Tech’s Department of Aerospace and Ocean Engineering. Her research interests are in nonlinear and chaotic vessel dynamics and computational fluid dynamics.
  • Elise Miller-Hooks

    Professor, Department of Civil Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing
    Affiliate faculty, Systems Engineering and Operations Research
     

    Elise Miller-Hooks is a Professor in the Civil Engineering department.
  • A portrait of Celso Ferreira

    Associate Professor, Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing

    Dr. Celso Ferreira has written over 20 technical publications and his research is currently funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Interior (DOI), the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) and several private organizations.

    Assistant Professor and affiliate faculty, Mechanical Engineering and Bioengineering, College of Engineering and Computing

     

    Jeffrey Moran's research interests lie in understanding and using micro-scale thermal-fluid transport phenomena to enable new solutions to fundamental challenges facing humanity, including sustainable energy, environmental remediation, and cancer treatment. His doctoral work helped explain the physical mechanism for the self-propulsion of "catalytic micromotors," which are micrometer-size metallic rods (50 times smaller than the width of a human hair) that can "swim" and carry cargo through liquids.
  • Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing

    Rao Mulpuri's present areas of research interest are large bandgap semiconductor (SiC, GaN, etc) materials, and devices (ion-implantation doping, ohmic contacts, device fabrication, material and device characterization). He joined GMU in September 1984, and became a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering in September 1993. Research 2013 - 2015 : A Novel GaNAIGaN Nanostructure Room-Temperature Sensor for Security Applications. Funded by National Science Foundation.
  • This is a photo of Cameron Nowzari

    Assistant Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing

    Cameron Nowzari's research interests are in the broad area of dynamics, controls, and robotics. More specifically, he is interested in the analysis and control of complex distributed and/or networked systems and spreading processes. A good example is to imagine a single human operator trying to control a swarm of 1000 robots. It is impossible for the human to send individual commands to each robot, but rather the human should send a high level command to the entire swarm.
  • Director of Digital Forensics and Interim Director for TCOM, Electrical and Computer Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing

    Robert Osgood (Bob), and engineer/C.P.A., is a 26 year veteran FBI Computer Forensics Examiner and Technically Trained Special Agent.  His specialties include: digital forensics, data intercept, cyber-crime, enterprise criminal organizations, espionage, and counter-terrorism. In the course of his work, he has performed digital forensics research and development and created unique new software tools for computer forensic law enforcement. He has also been employed as Project Director for ManTech International Corp. working in the Computer Forensic Intrusion Analysis Division.
