Liew named Associate Dean for Research


Dr. Jeffrey Liew, professor in the Department of Educational Psychology, will now serve as Associate Dean for Research in the College of Education and Human Development. Liew follows Dr. Sue Bloomfield who retired May 31.

“Having this opportunity to serve my college and Texas A&M is really meaningful because I have spent my career here, and I’ve had exceptional colleagues, collaborators and mentors who helped me grow as a researcher, teacher and leader,” Liew said. “I’m thankful to have the opportunity to give back to my college and university and do what others did for me.”

Liew’s time at Texas A&M began in 2005 as assistant professor in EPSY. He was promoted to professor in 2015. 

Liew has served in various service and leadership roles, including a representative of Texas A&M’s Council of Principal Investigators and a member of the CPI executive committee. He has  also served as a peer reviewer and standing panel member for national and international funding agencies, including the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.

He plans to use his experiences to help his colleagues avoid and overcome obstacles in their research.

“I’m a professor and researcher at heart. I know the time and work researchers put into their proposals and projects,” said Liew. “I know the trials and tribulations but also the wonder and thrills that researchers go through, so I have a lot of empathy and respect for my fellow researchers.”

Liew’s goals include helping researchers in the college use multidisciplinary and team science approaches to take on some of the most critical and complex issues in today’s society. He hopes to develop multidisciplinary research communities to work on ideas, projects and proposal development and to build sustainable partnerships and collaborations.

He knows taking on this role in the midst of a pandemic will be an added challenge, but one he is ready to take on.

“Learning more about the needs and challenges of researchers as we enter the post-COVID-19 era will be very important and will inform the types of modifications that need to be made,” said Liew. “I aspire for our research to advance our science and our understanding of diversity, inclusion and equity. I believe that inclusive research practices will maximize the benefits and the impact that our work can have on the entire population in Texas and beyond.”
