It is truly an honor to join the University of Pittsburgh as its tenth Dean of Engineering. For more than 170 years, engineering programs at Pitt have helped to transform our world, as well as the lives of generations of students, alumni, and faculty.

I'm excited to join the Swanson School and the entire university community, especially because of the amazing people here. Pitt has a strong sense of community and a pervasive ‘can do’ mindset that is inspiring. As an elite comprehensive university located in a city that's always been known for innovation and forward thinking, all of the critical ingredients are in place. I hope you share in my excitement for our future at one of the nation's best public engineering programs.
