Message from the Dean

I feel privileged to serve as Dean of the OU Gallogly College of Engineering. I have had the opportunity to meet many of the OU Engineering family including faculty and staff and am looking forward to getting to know many more of you as well as the bright students enrolled in one of seventeen programs administered by our seven schools.

I look forward to building on the foundation of excellence that has been laid by faculty, staff, previous deans, and administration, to ensure our college equips our students with engineering degrees to enter new careers, lead and innovate along the way. 

I am excited by this newest chapter in my career and hope to draw on my experiences in industry and academic leadership at the University of Massachusetts to help our college grow, educate, innovate and support each other. We will continue to hire the best and brightest to enhance collaborations and inspire students who have chosen OU as the institution where they will earn their bachelor, master's or doctorate degrees.
