Appointments and achievements
Professor carves out two careers
Gordon Library's "Wood in Repose" exhibit featured sculpture by chemical engineering professor William Moser. "Recluse," left, and "Contentment" were among the featured works.
E. Thomas Boulette, WPI's professor of practice and director of the nuclear engineering program, has been appointed to the U.S. Department of Energy's Nuclear Advisory Panel. The 30-member panel was created to advise the Nuclear Energy Division on its new nuclear research initiative. This program recognizes the potential of nuclear technology in all phases of life (medical, power, research, etc.) and will encourage the promotion of additional applications of this technology. Boulette came to WPI in 1998 from Boston Edison Co., where he was senior vice president of nuclear operations.
Steven C. Bullock, associate professor of history, received the 1999 Percy Adams Prize from the Southeastern American Society for Eighteenth Century Studies (SEASECS). Bullock was honored for his article, "A Mumper Among the Gentle: Tom Bell, Colonial Confidence Man," which appeared in the April 1998 issue of the William & Mary Quarterly. According to the citation, "the committee was impressed by Bullock's engagingly written analysis, sophisticated methodology, and clear commitment to an interdisciplinary approach."
Hossein Hakim, director of the Global Studies Program, will return to his faculty position in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department effective July 1. During his 12-year tenure as an administrator involved with the Interdisciplinary and Global Studies Division, he was instrumental in leading and developing WPI's Global Program. As a result of that leadership the program now ranks No. 1 among all technological institutions in the United States.
Allen H. Hoffman, professor of mechanical engineering, was named to a four-year term on the Board of Editorial Consultants for the Journal of Biomechanics.
