Peter Lennie had served in both academic and administrative capacities at Rochester for 16 years before becoming Dean for Science at New York University in 1999. There, he was responsible for the development of programs and departments in the natural sciences as well as interdisciplinary initiatives with the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Education, and the Tisch School of the Arts. He also was a professor in the Department of Neural Sciences during his seven-year tenure. In his research, Lennie has explored how the brain's visual cortex processes information about the form and color of objects. With more than 80 publications, he has examined fundamental questions about the relationship between visual perception and its underlying physiology.
