Communication professor Carlos Evia has been named associate dean for transdisciplinary initiatives at the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences (CLAHS).

Although it is housed in CLAHS, the Academy of Transdisciplinary Studies will serve the whole university. At Virginia Tech, Evia is a faculty affiliate of the Center for Human-Computer Interaction, a faculty fellow at the Center for Communicating Science, and serves as chief technology officer for the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences. Evia is also a member of the Virginia Tech Hispanic/Latino Faculty and Staff Caucus. During the 2020-2021 academic year, he was the faculty fellow at El Centro, the Hispanic and Latinx Cultural and Community Center.
Evia’s primary areas of research are technical and professional communication, user assistance, structured authoring, content strategy, and workplace safety communication.
