The Georgia Institute of Technology has named Chaouki T. Abdallah, currently provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at the University of New Mexico, to be its new executive vice president for research (EVPR). The EVPR directs Georgia Tech’s $824 million research program and is part of the Institute’s four-member executive leadership team.

Abdallah, who is a Georgia Tech alumnus with master’s and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering, conducts research and teaches courses in the general area of systems theory with focus on control and communications systems. He will move into the EVPR role in mid-August, succeeding Stephen E. Cross, who is stepping down after serving as Georgia Tech’s first EVPR for the past eight years.

“Dr. Abdallah has a proven track record as an administrator, scholar and researcher, along with experience collaborating with industry, government and community partners,” said Georgia Tech President G.P. “Bud” Peterson. “As a Tech alumnus who has remained engaged with the Institute, he brings a unique perspective. We’re looking forward to working with him to enhance Georgia Tech’s basic and applied research and maximize economic impact.”
