Dean Cristina Amon

Cristina Amon joined the University of Toronto in 2006 as the thirteenth Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering. In June 2010, Professor Amon was appointed to a second five-year term as Dean, beginning July 2011. She also holds the position of Alumni Chair of Bioengineering in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering. Prior to her leadership at U of T Engineering, she was Director of the Institute for Complex Engineered Systems (ICES) at Carnegie Mellon University, where she conceived and led interdisciplinary research initiatives, seeded high-impact projects, fostered a culture of innovation and promoted strong interactions with industry. A pioneer in the development of Computational Fluid Dynamics, Dean Amon continues her research here at the University of Toronto in nanoscale thermal transport in semiconductors and bioengineered devices.

As Dean, she is deeply committed to reaching out to alumni around the world and is particularly interested in strengthening ties with Singapore. In an era of globalization, academic collaborations between universities offer remarkable opportunities. Singapore's transition to a knowledge-based and innovation-driven economy positions its leading universities as strong partners in international academic and industrial collaborations. During this visit, Dean Amon hopes to establish relationships that will foster greater collaboration and exchange of knowledge between U of T Engineering and Singapore's leading institutions.
