"As a new faculty member in the Department of Computer Science, I am thrilled to be part of a program with such a storied history. Purdue was the first university in the country to establish a computer science department. In the 60 years since its founding, the department has remained at the forefront of research and education. This pioneering role in establishing the first computer science department is matched by its dedication to fostering an inclusive and collaborative community of scholars. I look forward to being a part of this dynamic and supportive department for years to come."
