Christopher Rose will continue his work in communications theory. As associate dean of the Brown University faculty, he will cobble together multidisciplinary faculty, postdoctoral, and graduate student teams by building on what he sees as the unusual technical breadth of underrepresented minorities in STEM disciplines.

Christopher Rose has a rather broad view of his chosen field of communication theory. It’s a cosmic-scale view, one might say.

“They say that when your tool is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. But when your hammer is communication theory, I really do think it applies just about everywhere,” said Rose, professor of engineering. “I’d say that my predilection is to look at whatever big question comes across my purview through the lense of information theory.”
