As part of its May 14 board meeting, the University System of Georgia (USG) Board of Regents appointed four College of Computing faculty members as Regents’ Professors.

The quartet are among the 11 Georgia Tech professors from across campus appointed to named faculty positions this month, and they represent each of the College’s three schools:

  • Haesun Park, a professor in the School of Computational Science & Engineering

“These appointments are worthy recognition of Sy, Surya, Beth, and Haesun and the significant research contributions each has made – and continues to make – to their respective fields,” said Zvi Galil, the John P. Imlay Jr. Dean of Computing at Georgia Tech.
