Meet our tenured and tenure-track faculty members in the College of Engineering and Computing.
Professor, Systems Engineering and Operations Research, College of Engineering and ComputingLeonard Adelman’s research is oriented toward (1) understanding judgment and decision processes, and (2) designing and evaluating systems to support them. Regarding the former, Adelman has performed research to understand how people define (or “frame”) judgment and decision problems.
Associate Professor, Associate Director at the Center for Secure Information Systems Information Sciences and Technology School of ComputingMassimiliano Albanese is an associate professor in the Department of Information Sciences and Technology, and he also serves as the Associate Director of the Center for Secure Information Systems (CSIS).
Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering, College of Engineering and ComputingMehdi Amiri is an Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at George Mason University. He joined Mason in Spring 2019 and since then he is enjoying training and mentoring the next generation of talented mechanical engineers. His research interests focus on the behavior of structural materials under operational conditions, in particular the effects of materials microstructure on performance under mechanical and environmental loadings.

College of Engineering and ComputingJonathan Auerbach's research covers a wide range of topics at the intersection of statistics and public policy. He has measured selection bias in mortality studies (with Andrew Gelman) and traffic safety studies (with Shaw-Hwa Lo and Tian Zheng) and assessed the quality of the 2020 census (with Paul Biemer and Joseph Salvo).
College of Engineering and ComputingHakan Aydin has taught at George Mason University since 2001. His research interests include real-time embedded systems, low-power computing, and fault tolerance. He was a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2006. He has served on the program committee of various conferences. He was also the technical program committee chair of the IEEE RTAS 2011, and the general chair of the IEEE RTAS 2012 conferences. He received the Department of Computer Science Teaching Award in 2006 and 2009.
Assistant Professor Statistics College of Engineering and ComputingPramita Bagchi’s research focuses on modelling and analysis of dependent data. Dependence among observed data is a phenomenon that arises naturally in important problems, especially in time series and spatial data.She is specifically interested in large complex objects, e.g. functional time series data or spatial surface data. These have emerged as an important object in recent years with the advancement of technology and availability of high-dimensional and high-resolution data, with numerous applications in climate science, geography, finance etc.
