The Institute recently announced that it has filled several key leadership positions. The new members of the Rensselaer community will be coming on board over the next few months. Look for further coverage in Inside Rensselaer later this summer.
Marthers is widely recognized for his work with the admissions process as well as his scholarly publications. In 2007, The Chronicle of Higher Education selected him as one of “10 admission deans who are shaping their field.”
Evan Douglis Studio is an internationally renowned architecture and interdisciplinary design firm committed to a culture of beautiful and benevolent design. The research of the firm into computer-aided digital design and fabrication technology, new materials and multimedia installations as applied to a range of diverse gallery installations, commercial projects, urban redevelopment schemes, and more recently a new generation of building components has elicited international acclaim. Douglis’ work offers unique insight into the role of smart materials in sustainable design, mass-customization for prefab construction, and the next generation of architectural skins integrating structure and ornament.
As dean of the School of Engineering at Rensselaer, Rosowsky will be responsible for strengthening the prominence of the school as one of the top engineering institutions in the nation. Rosowsky will continue to improve the School of Engineering undergraduate and graduate academic curricula and programs, and bolster its established excellence in sponsored research. He also will continue to grow Rensselaer’s world-class engineering faculty and staff.
Rosowsky is a renowned expert in the areas of structural reliability, probabilistic modeling of structural and environmental loads, and probability-based design. In recent years, his research has focused on the behavior of built environments subject to natural hazards; modeling and analysis of load effects on buildings and other structures, with particular emphasis on complex environmental phenomena; performance-based engineering for design, post-disaster condition assessment, and loss estimation studies; and reliability-based assessment of reinforced concrete bridges.
As the vice president for research, Berman will be responsible for advancing the research enterprise across the full range of academic disciplines and interdisciplinary activities. She will work closely with the president and provost in the development and implementation of policies and practices relating to all aspects of the university’s research mission.
Berman is one of the two founding principal investigators of the National Science Foundation’s TeraGrid project, the largest open scientific research infrastructure connecting supercomputer centers across the nation. She also served as director of the National Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure, a consortium of 41 research groups and institutions with the goal of building a national infrastructure to support research and education in science and engineering.
