Newsletter Adds Four Board Members


The new members of the Faculty Newsletter Editorial Board as of this spring are: Professors Markus Buehler (Civil and Environmental Engineering), Seth Lloyd (Mechanical Engineering), Daniele Veneziano (Civil and Environmental Engineering), and George Verghese (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science).

Foregoing the Institute-wide election process initiated last spring, the four new members were welcomed unanimously by the FNL Nominations Committee chaired by Professor John Belcher. In explaining the reason for bypassing the election process, Prof. Belcher commented, "There was just the right number of candidates to fill the open positions on the Board."
