Dave Thirumalai to Chair Department of Chemistry

We are excited to announce that Professor Dave Thirumalai of the University of Maryland College Park has accepted the chairmanship of the Department of Chemistry at UT Austin. Thirumalai will join the Department in January 2016.


Thirumalai received his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota and was a postdoc at Columbia University.  In 1985, he joined the faculty at the University of Maryland and rose through the ranks where he is currently a distinguished university professor and founding director of the biophysics program. Thirumalai’s research is primarily theoretical at the interfaces of chemistry, physics, and biology. He has published more than 325 peer-reviewed publications, many of which appear in top-tier journals, and given more than 200 invited talks. He has been recognized for his accomplishments by receiving numerous awards, including more recently a Distinguished Faculty Research Fellowship Award and the Humboldt Research Award for Senior U.S. Scientists. He was also elected to the Royal Society of Chemistry and is a fellow of the Biophysical Society.
