At the University of Virginia, I serve in a number of initiatives in my department and school. I also serve the professional community through editorial and committee work in the IEEE Signal Processing Society and IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society.
Project Leader, UVA CHARGE Implementation Team (2015-)
The UVA CHARGE initiative is supported by the NSF ADVANCE program to increase the participation of women as faculty in STEM and SBE fields at UVA. As a member of the implementation team, I am leading a number of efforts including the 2015 redesign of the Faculty and Candidate Guide and the upcoming Portraiture Project. These projects, along with other UVA CHARGE efforts, will create diverse departments fit for the 21st century, support recruitment and hiring across STEM and SBE disciplines, and promote a more inclusive environment with greater voice and visibility for women faculty and others under-represented in these fields.
Member, SEAS Website Redesign Selection Committee (2016-2017)
The School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) has embarked on a comprehensive redesign of its online presence, including its website, and the websites of its departments and units. As a steering committee member, I promote the interests of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and participated in the website design firm selection process. I also served on the committee in the early stages of the website redesign. The committee is chaired by Elizabeth Mather in the SEAS Communications Office.
Member, Computational Imaging Special Interest Group (SIG), IEEE Signal Processing Society (2016-)
Associate Editor, IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging (2015-)
These professional service efforts are aimed to promote computational and medical imaging as disciplines within the field of signal processing. As an associate editor, I manage the review and revision process for 20+ manuscripts per year, assigning and communicating with reviewers, providing recommendations to the editor-in-chief, and supporting authors' efforts to revise and resubmit papers for eventual publication. These efforts help ensure the IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging continues to attract top-quality scholarship and maintain its leadership in the field of medical imaging journals. As a member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society special interest group on Computational Imaging, I am working with other early career and established researchers to promote computational imaging at signal processing conferences, recognize leaders in the field, and support publication of new advances in society periodicals.
I am also involved in the following committees and initiatives at UVA:
- Image Processing Seminar Series - organizer
- Electrical Engineering Graduate Admissions and Program Committee
- Electrical and Computer Engineering Department -- Marketing Ad-hoc Committee
I am also involved in other professional service, including:
- Reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, IEEE Transactions on Computational Imaging, IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Elsevier), and Magnetic Resonance in Medicine
- Organizing session on "Phase Retrieval for Imaging: Theory and Methods " at the 2016 IEEE Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems, and Computers
