Dear alumni and friends,

It is an incredible time to be connected to the College of Science, and I am pleased to bring you quite a bit of good news through this issue of Insights.

Data science is the theme of this issue and, not coincidentally, a strategic priority at Purdue, where the College is pivotal in growing computer science offerings, defining Purdue’s data science curricula and spearheading our research efforts. Sunil Prabhakar, who led these efforts exceptionally well through his role as head of the Department of Computer Science, will now lead Purdue’s Integrative Data Science Initiative (IDSI), ensuring significant steps forward in discovery and teaching.
