Sina Ghaemmaghami named new director of undergraduate research

August 29, 2019

Sina Ghaemmaghami, an associate professor of biology, has been appointed the director of undergraduate research. He succeeds Steve Manly, who stepped down at the end of June, after 11 years in the position, to become the new chair of Physics and Astronomy.

“Sina Ghaemmaghami was a natural choice to direct our efforts in undergraduate research,” says Jeffrey Runner, dean of the College. “In addition to his well-deserved praise for his teaching in both small and large classes—he is the winner of a 2017 Goergen for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching—he has mentored many students in his own lab, enabling them to develop research programs and publicly present their work.”
