Message from the Chair

Dear Colleagues, Students, Alumni, & Friends,

In 2014 we had good and bad news. Our Applied Mathematics Program was strengthened by the arrivals of Professors Qiang Du and Kyle Mandli. We were able to successfully recruit Professor Alex Gaeta from Cornell University to join our Condensed Matter/Optics program. He will be coming on board in 2015. Our Materials Science Program is renovating its teaching laboratories and is in the process of revising its undergraduate and graduate curriculum. Our new transmission electron microscope is on schedule to be delivered on December 18th. We are also in the process of searching for a faculty member who is an expert in materials synthesis, who, we hope, will join us next year. We are, thus, entering 2015 with optimism. On the other hand, we are saddened by the loss our beloved colleague Professor Morton B. Friedman who was the co-founder of our Applied Mathematics Program. We will truly miss him.

I wish all of you Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year.

Best regards,

I. Cevdet Noyan
Chair, APAM
