M. Alex O. Vasilescu received her education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Toronto. She was a senior fellow at UCLA's Institute of Pure and Applied Math (IPAM) in 2021 and held positions at the MIT Media Lab from 2005–07, at New York University’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences from 2001–05.

In the early 2000s, Vasilescu framed computer graphics, computer vision and machine learning problems as multilinear tensor problems and addressed causal inference questions.  Causal inference in a tensor framework facilitates the analysis, recognition, synthesis, and interpretability of sensory data. The development of the causal tensor framework has been spearheaded with papers, such as: Human Motion Signatures (2001), TensorFaces (2002), Multilinear Independent Component Analysis (2005), TensorTextures (2004), and Multilinear Projection for Recognition (2007, 2011).

Vasilescu’s work was featured on the cover of Computer World Canada (currently, IT World Canada), and in articles in the New York Times, Washington Times, etc.  MIT's Technology Review named her as TR100 honoree, and the National Academy of Science co-awarded the KeckFutures Initiative Grant.
