Master of Data Science Director Appointment

Dear Colleagues,

I’m pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Jeremy Teitelbaum as the director of the Master of Data Science program effective immediately. The program has previously been co-directed by Kent Holsinger, Vice Provost for Graduate Education and Dean of the Graduate School, and Peter Diplock, Associate Vice Provost for the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. I extend my gratitude to both Kent and Peter for their willingness to supervise this program since its development in 2020.

Reporting directly to the dean of The Graduate School, Professor Teitelbaum will oversee the interdisciplinary 30-credit hour program which draws on courses and expertise from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, School of Engineering, School of Business, College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources, and the Neag School of Education. Professor Teitelbaum is a professor in the department of Mathematics and previously served as interim provost at UConn in 2017-2018. Before that, he was the dean of UConn’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) from 2008-2017.

Professor Teitelbaum is a number theorist and has worked on a range of problems related to elliptic curves, modular forms, p-adic L-functions, and p-adic analytic geometry. His current research is in bioinformatics, unsupervised learning, and in mathematical questions in machine learning.

I am extremely grateful to Professor Teitelbaum for taking on this important role in this innovative and interdisciplinary program. Please join me in congratulating Professor Teitelbaum on this appointment.
