Mohan Ramamurthy selected as Unidata director

After a national search, atmospheric scientist Mohan Ramamurthy has been selected as the new director of the Unidata Program Center within UOP. Mohan, who will arrive in mid-January 2003, has had a long-time relationship with Unidata, serving on its external Policy Committee and chairing its Users Committee. He has also served on UCAR’s University Relations Committee since 2001.

Mohan received his Ph.D. in meteorology from the University of Oklahoma and did postdoc work at Florida State University. He will be leaving the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where he has been a professor in the atmospheric sciences department since 1987.

Mohan’s interests include mesoscale processes, ensemble forecasting, information technology, and interactive multimedia instruction and learning.

“We are proud to have Mohan joining UCAR and look forward to many years of strong leadership at Unidata,” says UOP director Jack Fellows.

Outgoing Unidata director Dave Fulker now directs the central office of the National Science Digital Library (see the October 2001 issue of SN Monthly).
