New Graduate Studies Dean
Adam Woolley, who started his term as the dean of Graduate Studies on May 15, is a professor in BYU’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
“The vast experience that Adam Woolley brings to his new role as dean will be invaluable," Reese said. "I am impressed with his commitment to graduate students and his thoughtful vision of the role of Graduate Studies within the university.”
Woolley will take over from Logan Gillette, who has been serving as the interim dean since July 2020 following the appointment of the previous dean, John “Keoni” S.K. Kauwe, as the president of BYU–Hawaii.
“We thank Logan Gillette for his willingness to step in and provide excellent leadership," Reese said. "His exemplary service to the university is appreciated.”
As a student, Woolley earned a bachelor’s degree from BYU and a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley. After postdoctoral work at Harvard University, he began teaching chemistry and biochemistry at BYU in 2000.
Woolley’s scholarship is directed at the interface between miniaturization and biomolecules. He develops microfluidic devices for chemical analysis with an emphasis on biomedically relevant assays, and he is utilizing biomolecules to self-assemble nanoscale electronic systems.
