GA-fuzzy researcher named dean at Alabama
Yesterday, Chuck Karr, noted researcher in combining fuzzy logic and genetic algorithms, was named to be the University of Alabama's dean of engineering (see here). I started my academic teaching career at Alabama from 1984 to 1990, and Chuck Karr was my first PhD graduate (1989). Chuck comes to the dean's job with stints as head of Aeronautical Engineering and Mechanics and as Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies. Please join me in wishing Chuck Karr heartfelt congratulations and best of luck.
