Message from the Chair

This term has seen many major developments that bode well for the present and future.

The Department is very proud to announce that SEAS has a new dean, Feniosky Peña-Mora, and the University a new provost, Claude M. Steele. We look forward to working closely with both of them in helping our Department and School excel even more.

This issue details the awards and honors bestowed upon our faculty and research scientists, including Michael Weinstein, David Keyes, Philip Kim, Adam Sobel, Simon Billinge, Latha Venkataraman, and Darren Garnier. We profile visits from old friends, including emeritus faculty and alumni. We also highlight the inspiring interdepartmental research performed by Cev Noyan, in which he used his expertise in neutron scattering to explore cables in suspension bridges, along with the challenges our applied mathematics undergraduates faced in the modeling contest they entered.

Our major department renovation is now complete!

Once again, APAM is very pleased to extend a hearty hello to our alumni and other friends of the department. Please stay in touch!

Irving Herman, APAM Chair
