Local professors chosen for Obama team

Two UC San Diego professors have been chosen to join President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team, it was reported today.

Peter Cowhey, dean of the School of International Relations and Pacific Studies, will advise Obama on trade policy, while Mario Molina, a professor of chemistry and biology, will advise on science and technology policies, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

In a written statement, UC San Diego Chancellor Marye Ann Fox stated the work Cowhey and Molina do now will serve the country for years to come.

“These two multifaceted scholars represent the exceptional and deep reservoir of talent among our ranks at UC San Diego,” Fox stated. “This is a good sign from the new administration to be reaching beyond the Washington infrastructure to call upon the experience, talent and wisdom of Peter Cowhey and Mario Molina.”
