The educational mission of New York University Abu Dhabi emphasizes the integration of the life, physical, mathematical, and computer sciences with other academic disciplines. This integration manifests itself in the multidisciplinary nature of research at NYUAD, research that addresses some of the most pressing issues affecting the globe while simultaneously asking questions that further the basic understanding of nature and the universe.

Godfried joined the NYUAD in 2011 and, as Professor and Program Head of Computer Science, played a central role in shaping the excellence of our Computer Science program. He was a profoundly caring and effective teacher, who brought the beauty and potential of the field alive as he masterfully cultivated students’ grasp of its central concepts and applications. Godfried was also a renowned and deeply respected scholar, whose outstanding academic and research contributions were broadly recognized around the globe. We miss him dearly.
