Jan. 25, 2000 – (Lexington, Ky.) – The University of Kentucky Board of Trustees today appointed Henry G. Dietz as the James F. Hardymon Endowed Chair in Networking. The chair was established with matching funds from the Research Challenge Trust Fund.

Dietz, who has a doctorate in electrical engineering from the Polytechnic Institute of New York, has been on the faculty of the Purdue University School of Electrical and Computer Engineering in West Lafayette, Ind., since 1986. During that time, he served as chairman of the computer engineering area and was a visiting professor at Washington University in St. Louis. He served last year as director of the school’s Parallel Processing Laboratory, which develops and maintains the university’s most powerful supercomputers.

Dietz and his wife, Sabire Ozcan, have simultaneously joined the UK faculty. Ozcan, who had been teaching at Washington University, is now a biochemistry professor at the UK College of Medicine.
