Dept of Physics | June 28, 2017
Peter Garnavich is appointed to the position of chair of the Department of Physics, effective July 1, 2017. He replaces Christopher Kolda, who steps down as the chair after four years of leadership to the department.
Said Garnavich of his new role, “This is a very different job for me, but one I will find exciting and rewarding. I look forward to representing the students, faculty and staff of the physics department."
Garnavich is an excellent leader, teacher and researcher, said Mary Galvin, the William K. Warren Foundation Dean, and “is just the individual to maintain and build upon the positive momentum that Chris has achieved in a number of key areas.”
