UC Berkeley

June 7th 2016

UC Berkeley leadership announced yesterday the appointment of Cathryn Carson, Associate Professor in the Department of History, to the Thomas M. Siebel Presidential Chair in the History of Science.  Carson will be the inaugural holder of the chair, created by the Thomas and Stacey Siebel Foundation to “recognize and support scholarly and research activities of an outstanding [Berkeley] faculty member in the History of Science.”  

One of the foremost historians of modern physics and an academic leader in the areas of data science and nuclear engineering, Carson said the chair  will allow her to further not only her own research “but also Berkeley’s long tradition at the forefront of teaching and research in the history of science.”
