CORVALLIS, Ore. – Rob Stone, professor of mechanical engineering at Oregon State University, has been named the executive director of the university’s Impact Studio.

Launched by the Office of the Provost in 2018, the Impact Studio helps develop OSU strategies to respond creatively and nimbly to trends in higher education.

Stone recently completed a four-year assignment as director of the National Science Foundation’s Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation. Prior to that role, he led Oregon State’s School of Mechanical, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering.

His research activities center on engineering design with a focus on concept generation methods.

Stone will replace Rich Duncombe, who joined Oregon State in December 2017 as the inaugural executive director of what was then called the Innovation Hub. Stone’s appointment is effective April 1.
