I am extremely pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Peter Pauly as Interim Dean of the Rotman School of Management, from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014, or until the appointment of a new Dean, whichever comes first.

An extensive consultation process resulted in the resounding recommendation of Professor Pauly as Interim Dean, and I am grateful that he has agreed to serve in this important role. Professor Pauly is an excellent and highly-experienced academic administrator. In his current role as Vice-Dean, Academic, he has shepherded the Rotman School through its ambitious expansion and has also been an exemplary University citizen.

Professor Pauly's academic research interests are in the areas of econometrics, macroeconomics, and international economics. He is a leading scholar in the field of applied econometrics and macroeconomic modeling. His recent work has dealt with trade and exchange rate issues, and with the theoretical foundations of model-based forecasting techniques. He has been the author of several books and more than seventy articles in these areas. He has been a policy advisor to national governments and central banks around the world and serves as a consultant to many national and international agencies. Since 1981, Professor Pauly has also served as the Executive Director of Project LINK, an international economic research consortium headquartered at the University of Toronto and at the United Nations in New York. Professor Pauly holds degrees from the University of Hamburg (B.A. 1971, Ph.D. 1976), as well as an honorary degree from the University of Pretoria.

The Advisory Committee for a new Dean of the Rotman School has been meeting frequently and I am happy to report that our discussions are proceeding well. Due to the unusual January start time of the search, the committee is still in the middle stages of its deliberations, with an eye to accelerated completion during the autumn term.
