ATHENS, Ohio (Jan. 10, 2007) -- Ohio University has named Roger Radcliff, an electrical and computer engineering professor in the Russ College of Engineering and Technology, as interim chair of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS).
The school's chair, Shawn Ostermann, was named interim chief information officer for Ohio University, effective Jan. 2. Ostermann will return to his Russ College post in June.
Radcliff, who joined the Russ College in 1982, is also the graduate chair of EECS. He has also served as EECS undergraduate chair and Russ College associate dean for academic affairs.
"It is an honor to serve as chair of a school consisting of some of the finest and most talented individuals I feel you'll find anywhere. I've been with EECS at Ohio University my entire professional career, and I'm proud of the trust placed in me by Dean Irwin to keep the school moving forward," Radcliff said.
Radcliff's research interests include antenna theory and design, scattering and propagation, and computational methods in electromagnetics for avionics applications. He is the author of many refereed papers and refereed conference publications, and he has performed research for the National Science Foundation, the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Security Agency. He earned his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from West Virginia University.
Educating well-rounded professionals with both technical and team-project skills, the Russ College offers undergraduate and graduate degrees across the traditional engineering spectrum and in technology disciplines such as aviation, computer science, and industrial technology. Strategic research areas include bioengineering, energy and the environment, and smart civil infrastructure. Named for alumnus Fritz Russ and his wife Dolores, the Russ College is home of the Russ Prize, one of the top three engineering prizes in the world.
