Emily Carter Returns to UCLA
Dr. Emily Carter will be returning to UCLA as Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, effective September 1, 2019. In this role, Carter will be UCLA’s chief academic officer, bringing leadership and a fresh perspective to campus-wide policy, planning, initiatives, and operations. IPAM is particularly thrilled with this appointment as Carter has been involved with IPAM since its inception. She helped establish IPAM, was an organizer and a speaker for many workshops through the years, as well as a keynote speaker in IPAM’s 2013 public lecture, Quantum Mechanics and the Future of the Planet. Carter spent 16 years as a UCLA faculty member before heading to Princeton where she currently serves as dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the Gerhard R. Andlinger Professor in Energy and the Environment, and a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and of applied and computational mathematics. Welcome back, Dr. Carter!
