The College announced yesterday that 7 faculty members had been awarded tenure:

Michelle Apotsos, art;

Corinna Campbell, music;

Charles Doret, physics;

Susan Godlonton, economics;

Leo Goldmakher, mathematics;

Pamela Harris, mathematics;

Greg Phelan, economics

Being awarded tenure as a faculty member at any U.S. college or university is quite an achievement.  It is even more impressive at a place like Williams.  Kudos to each of the new tenured faculty.

In browsing through the individual links above, I noticed an interesting mix of backgrounds for newly tenured professors, including one born in South Africa, a Mexican-American mathematician, and an economics professor who spent three years as a proprietary trader for D.E. Shaw LLC.  Also, Prof. Doret is a Williams grad (Class of 2002).  I’m hopeful that this group will bring an good mixture of thoughts and perspectives to the Williams community during their (hopefully long) time in the Purple Valley.

Have any readers had any of these Professors, or know anything about them?
