In May 2019, my colleague Prof. Meenakshi Wadhwa was appointed the Director of ASU's School of Earth and Space Exploration. This is a really good thing for SESE given Mini's many strengths and achievements and SESE's great potential in Earth and Space Sciences. I have continued my role as Deputy Director for SESE (I had done the same for our former Director Lindy Elkins-Tanton). It has been an honor to work for both Lindy and Mini. They are inspiring and effective leaders.
I too applied to be the Director and am very happy that Mini is the director. I put some energy into my application materials thinking about SESE and my own leadership experience and vision, so I have decided to post them here. If nothing else, it will help me find them quicker as I tend to refer to them occasionally.

- Presentation PPT PDF -- this was not so great in that I got sick on the second day of the interview and so it was delivered in a hoarse whisper! It was a sign probably that I could not hack it (the job that is; it was a stressful time).
