R. Bruce Thompson has been named director of the Center for Nondestructive Evaluation (CNDE).

Thompson is a distinguished professor of engineering and has served as the deputy director of CNDE since 1985.

Provost John Kozak said Thompson "will help CNDE maintain its momentum as a world-recognized leader in the area of non-invasive inspection technologies."

Thompson most recently served as associate director of science and technology at the Ames Laboratory, a position from which he is retiring.
