Linos Jacovides

Linos Jacovides joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as a professor in January 2014.

His research expertise includes electric propulsion, automotive electrical systems, alternative fuels and energy.

Subir Biswas

Subir's research interests include the broad area of wireless data networking, low-power network protocols, vehicular networks, on-body networks, and application-specific sensor networks. Research in Prof. Biswas' NeEWS laboratory spans across a wide range of embedded system design issues including resource-constrained network systems, embedded operating systems, network middleware, mobile content delivery, and application specific hardware and software subsystem design.

Guoliang Xing

Guoliang Xing earned his D.Sc. ('06) and M.S. ('03) in computer science from Washington University in St. Louis. He received a B.S. in electrical engineering and M.S. in computer science from Xi'an Jiaotong University in 1998 and 2001, respectively. Prior to joining MSU, he was an assistant professor of computer science at the City University of Hong Kong. His research interests include wireless sensor networks, mobile computing, and networked embedded systems.

Charles Ofria

Charles Ofria director of the Digital Evolution Laboratory. He conducts research on evolution in artificial systems and applies the results to problems in computer science and evolutionary biology. He developed Avida, a software-based research platform consisting of populations of 'digital organisms used in biological research. His work has been published in Science and Nature and his research has received international media attention in forums such as Discover Magazine, National Geographic, CNN, the BBC, New Scientist, and the New York Times.

Irene Xagoraraki

My research program is focused on water quality engineering, emphasizing protection of public health and prevention of waterborne disease. In particular, I am interested in emerging water contaminants (such as viruses) and their detection, occurrence, fate, removal, inactivation, and risk.

Thomas Wolff

Geotechnical; reliability analysis of dams, levees and hydraulic structures, probabilistic analysis and reliability-based design in geotechnical engineering; probabilistic slope stability analysis.

Thomas Voice

Professor Voice's research involves the mass-transfer of chemical contaminants in systems of environmental interest, with emphasis on interactions between pollutants and soils, sediments, and suspended solids. Current research is focused on the environmental impact and remediation of terrestrial chemical spills. He is involved in research on water and waste treatment systems that utilize activated carbon absorption. Professor Voice maintains a strong secondary interest in the development of new and improved methods for chemical analysis.

Volodymyr Tarabara

Dr. Volodymyr Tarabara joined MSU and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in 2004.  His research interests are in the interdisciplinary area at the junction of colloid and interface science and separation science.  Most of the current work focuses on membrane processes and materials with projects on emulsion separation, virus removal by porous membranes, and catalytic membrane reactors. Dr.

Susan Masten

Professor Masten's research involves the use of chemical oxidants for the remediation of soils, water, and leachates contaminated with hazardous organic chemicals. Her research is presently focused on the in-situ use of gaseous ozone to oxidize residual contaminant in saturated soils using ozone sparging and in unsaturated soils using soil venting. Dr. Masten is also very interested in evaluating the toxicity of the by-products of chemical oxidation processes as measured by gap junction intercellular communication.
