Last update on .

We're delighted to announce that, with Tom Dean stepping down, Eli Upfal has agreed to take over as Chair of this department effective July 1, 2002. Eli joined the department in 1997 from the Weizmann Institute and IBM Almaden Research Center.

As Chair since 1997, Tom's contributions to the department have been incalculable, and we are more grateful than we can say for his extremely hard work, not only as chair but also as Brown's acting CIO for six months. He will be on leave this coming academic year; we all hope he'll use part of that leave to get some well-deserved rest!
