I am pleased to introduce the two newest Topical Editors for JOSA A, Minchen (Tommy) Wei and John Schotland.

Tommy Wei joins us from Hong Kong Polytechnic Institute, Hong Kong, where he teaches and studies color, imaging, and illumination. His many contributions to the field include several outstanding papers in JOSA A [13]. He replaces Sérgio Nascimento in covering color vision and color science. Sérgio recently completed his second three-year term as topical editor. His tenure was marked by a resurgence in the Journal’s engagement with the color vision research community, and his leadership in the field and at the Journal has changed both for the better. I’m pleased to welcome Tommy as a worthy successor, full of promise for continued growth in activity and quality in this deeply important topic at JOSA A.

John Schotland joins the team with a newly defined portfolio of coverage, mathematical optics. JOSA A has long been the de facto home for mathematical techniques in optics, and with this new appointment we make an explicit commitment to mathematical optics at JOSA A. For years, John has been showing the way for computational imaging through his beautiful solutions to the inverse problem for several optical modalities. Some of John’s most highly cited work was published in JOSA A [4,5], and I have, myself, coauthored a paper in JOSA A with him [6]. John has had impact far beyond inverse problems, with significant contributions in quantum optics, acousto-optics, and mathematical methods. For me, most importantly, he was my post-doctoral advisor and one of the defining mentors in my own career, as he has been for so many others. It is a pleasure to welcome John to the JOSA A team and a special joy for me to work with him.

John Schotland

Mathematical Optics

josaa-38-11-ED4-i001

John Schotland is Professor of Mathematics at Yale University, USA. His research entails the study of scattering theory, wave propagation in random media, and quantum optics. Prior to joining the Yale faculty, he was a Professor of Mathematics and Physics at University of Michigan, USA, and the founding director of the Michigan Center for Applied and Interdisciplinary Mathematics (MCAIM). He earned his M.D. and Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania, USA.

Minchen Wei

Color Vision

josaa-38-11-ED4-i002

Minchen Wei received his bachelor’s degree from Fudan University, China, in 2009 and his M.Sc. and Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University, USA, in 2011 and 2015, respectively. He joined The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, as Assistant Professor in 2015 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2020. His research interests mainly include color science, imaging science, and illuminating engineering. His work has been supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the Hong Kong Research Grants Council, and various industrial partners. He currently serves as a national/regional representative in Divisions 1 and 8 in the International Commission on Illumination (CIE) and is the Vice President of CIE Hong Kong.
