New faculty members contribute to the depth and dynamism of our academic community. Browse the list of new faculty below and learn more about them and their areas of expertise. Please take the time to reach out and welcome them to Duke and to the community.

The Office for Faculty Advancement is committed to serving all Duke faculty and providing them with the resources and support needed to succeed and thrive, and we invite you to take advantage of the resources and programs our office provides. These include our Faculty Advancement and Success (FAS) workshop series, our programs and initiatives, and our best practices on inclusive teaching, mentoring, promotion and tenure.

Information provided by the Office of Institutional Research includes regular rank faculty with start dates of July 2022 or later, plus off-cycle hires since last year’s list. Some are not new to Duke; their inclusion reflects recent appointment as regular rank faculty, or a return to Duke. Start dates are July 1, 2022 unless otherwise noted.
