TORONTO, ON – An economist and experienced academic administrator has been appointed as the Interim Dean of the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management.

Prof. Peter Pauly will serve as the Interim Dean starting on July 1, 2013 for a one-year term or until a new Dean is named. In his current role as Vice-Dean, Academic, he has helped lead the Rotman School through its ambitious expansion, which included the opening of a landmark building expansion last year. The announcement was made by Cheryl Misak, Vice-President and Provost, of the University earlier today.

Prof. Pauly’s academic research interests are in the areas of econometrics, macroeconomics and international economics. He is a leading scholar in the field of applied econometrics and macroeconomic modeling. His recent work has dealt with trade and exchange rate issues, and with the theoretical foundations of model-based forecasting techniques. He has been the author of several books and more than seventy articles in these areas. He has been a policy advisor to national governments and central banks around the world and serves as a consultant to many national and international agencies. Since 1981, Professor Pauly has also served as the Executive Director of Project LINK, an international economic research consortium headquartered at the University of Toronto and at the United Nations in New York. Professor Pauly holds degrees from the University of Hamburg (B.A. 1971, Ph.D. 1976), as well as an honorary degree from the University of Pretoria.

Current Dean Roger Martin announced his plans to step down from the position late last year after leading the school since 1998.
