College of Science faculty, staff, and graduate students have earned a record-breaking number of honors at University Day, a celebratory launch to the academic year featuring an annual awards ceremony. Science winners amassed an impressive 11 awards, beating the previous record of seven and garnering the most of any college across Oregon State.
The College of Science is excited to announce Professor Jonathan Kujawa as Department Head of Mathematics following a competitive national search, effective January 1, 2024. Kujawa brings expertise in departmental leadership as associate chair of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Oklahoma, as well as extensive research experience and undergraduate, graduate student and postdoctoral mentorship.
The College of Science is excited to welcome eight new faculty members this fall. They bring diverse expertise in gravitational wave astronomy, applied topology, organometallic compounds, age-dependent diseases and more.
This coming fall the Mathematics Department will be welcoming two new tenure-track assistant professors, Nicholas Marshall and Chad Giusti, and two new postdoctoral scholars, Bella Tobin and Zachary Hilliard, into our community. A third tenure-track hire, Dr. Xueying Yu, will be joining OSU in September 2023 after completing her current postdoctoral visit at the University of Washington.
