Abstract: In this talk I aim to accomplish two goals. First I would like to communicate an outline for my vision for the department and where I feel the department should be in 5 to 10 years. I will also describe a framework for developing a strategic plan through the active participation of the faculty that will enable us to realize a shared culture in research and a common sense of direction. Second I will describe how my background will enable me to lead the department in the right direction. I will describe my accomplishments in the areas of carrying out high quality research, advising and placement of students, obtaining funding, and developing long term relationships with industry.
