Jeffrey Diller

Department of Mathematics | June 30, 2016

Jeffrey Diller is appointed to the position of chair of the Department of Mathematics, effective July 1, 2016. He replaces Misha Gekhtman, who steps down as chair after three years of dedicated leadership to the department. Says Diller of his new role, “I greatly admire the influence of our two previous chairs. Among other things, we hired a number of outstanding young faculty in the past several years.The energy level of the department has risen palpably as a result. In addition to supporting the work of our new colleagues, my greatest hope and intention is to maintain and build on this momentum in hiring during my own tenure.”

Mary Galvin, the William K. Warren Foundation Dean, says of Diller’s appointment, “I believe that Jeff is just the individual to maintain the significant momentum that Misha has achieved these past three years. His experience in myriad key roles over almost two decades at Notre Dame makes him well-suited to step into this position of responsibility.”
