Professor Paul Shepson has been named Dean of Stony Brook University School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS).

He joined the Purdue faculty in 1994, serving as Chemistry department head from 2008-2013.

“I have been enormously fortunate to be a member of this great department and university, which have enabled me to do science way beyond my natural capabilities, because of creative collaborators, and unparalleled facility support.  I hope that I have come close to giving back as much as I have received from you,” he said in a message to faculty and staff.

Shepson is currently serving as the NSF Director of the Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences.

His tenure at SoMAS begins on July 2, 2018.
