As dean of the New York University Tandon School of Engineering, Katepalli Sreenivasan has kept the Downtown Brooklyn-based school on firm footing while finalizing NYU’s merger with Brooklyn Polytechnic. On his watch, hundreds of graduates have helped spur Brooklyn’s thriving tech sector, including a growing number of women. After five years on the job, Sreenivasan, who is also an accomplished experimental physicist, is passing the torch to Jelena Kovačević, the school’s first female dean and a biomedical engineer from Carnegie Mellon University.
