UH has announced interim director and College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics faculty member Dan E. Wells as the new dean.

“Developing a five-year strategic plan for the College is my top priority,” said Wells in a news release. “The College benefits from a strong faculty with research programs and expertise in many areas, including energy and biomedicine. My plan is to capitalize on our collaborations with industry, health care and NASA, placing NSM in the position to impact both the local and global community.”

Wells is a long time faculty member and has been the interim dean since February 2013. Before he began his post as interim director, he was the chair of the department of biology and biochemistry.
