We took to campus to see how many people could answer the question– "Who is the Vice President for Research at Georgia Tech?"

A few responses? "I'm guessing oversees a lot of people and does a lot of meetings" and "I'd say he probably does some research..."

The answer? Chaouki T. Abdallah, the executive vice president for research at Georgia Tech, provides overall leadership for the Institute’s $1 billion portfolio of research, economic development and sponsored activities, including the Georgia Tech Research Institute, 10 interdisciplinary research institutes, and related research administrative support units. "Research brings you together."
