Mudur joined ENCS in 2002, after having been the Associate Director of the National Centre for Software Technology in Mumbai, India. He holds a PhD from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Bombay where he was also a research scientist. His impressive CV includes over 40 published papers, 16 book chapters and 85 publications for conferences or workshops.
His time at the helm of Computer Science and Software Engineering was marked by considerable progress. He guided the department through rigorous accreditation processes. He was dedicated to the renewal of department, knowing the importance of adding new faculty members. Most recently his efforts have culminated in two new hirings for this year.
"It has been a pleasure to work with Sudhir and he has left the Department in good shape and on the right track," said Robin Drew, Dean of Engineering and Computer Science.
Nematollaah Shiri, who has coffee with Dr. Mudur almost every day, describes his colleague as "a man of vast experience, fairness, dedication, and big heart," and lauds his ability to "professionally and patiently deal with and resolve different issues in our 'multicultural' department."
Peter Grogono will serve as Interim Chair of Computer Science and Software Engineering while the Faculty searches for a full-time Chair. Mudur will be going on sabbatical and will return to the Faculty afterward.
