Shyamal Bose is passionate about seeing the next generation succeed.
And, as the new Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programs for the Faculty of Mathematics and Science, his goal is to provide as many opportunities as possible to help students enter the workforce with confidence.
Bose has spent nearly 30 years working as a professor in Brock’s Department of Physics, where he held the role of chair from 2003-08.
During his time at the helm, he successfully mounted three new programs: Biophysics, a minor in Physics and a BSc Honours with concentration in Applied Optics and Laser Technology — the latter a joint venture with Niagara College.
Bose has served on numerous departmental, faculty and University committees, and from 1998 to 2000 he represented Brock on the Appraisal Committee of Ontario Council of Graduate Studies. He also worked alongside current Physics Chair Ed Sternin to organize the Canadian Association of Physicists 2006 Annual Congress at Brock — a first-time event for the University.
With more than 100 publications in refereed journals and conference proceedings, Bose has collaborated extensively with scientists both nationally and internationally.
He has spent extended periods as a visiting scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Germany, and at the Institute of Physics, Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague.
Bose’s three-year term as Associate Dean began July 1.
