Raheem Beyah, dean of the College of Engineering and Southern Company Chair, has announced that Doug Williams has been appointed senior associate dean, effective August 1.

Williams has served as associate dean of administration and finance of the College’s leadership team since 2016. He is responsible for the College’s business operations, including supervising its directors of facilities, finance, human resources, and information systems. Williams also develops the faculty hiring plan and helps school chairs with hiring.

Williams’s duties will soon expand within the College as he becomes further involved in additional internal operations. He will advise and consult with school chairs on matters related to faculty and staff retention, efficient operation of school business affairs, and strategic planning.

As part of this new appointment, Williams will also more frequently represent the College and Beyah to other Georgia Tech units, including other colleges, the Office of the Provost, Office of the Executive Vice President of Research, and various administration and finance offices. He already represents the provost’s office on matters related to campus academic space and facilities, working closely with other colleges to determine space needs and to identify resources to meet them. This includes collaborating with executives who manage space portfolios for research and administration and finance, as well as committees that manage space in various research buildings, such as the Coda Building and the Technology Square Research Building.

“I’m incredibly grateful for Doug’s guidance and leadership within the College. I’m thankful for his flexibility and willingness to represent us, our faculty, and our staff across Georgia Tech,” said Beyah. “Engineers are problem solvers who roll up our sleeves and find better ways to help the community. Williams is a shining example of this mentality.”

Williams joined the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering faculty in 1989, where he is affiliated with the Center for Signal and Information Processing. His research interests have involved the application of statistical signal processing methods to communications, radar signal processing, and the study of nonlinear dynamics.
