The objective of the Headquarters staff of the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is simple: ensuring that RLE provides an unsurpassed environment for academic research and student learning.

Working under the Director of RLE, Marc Baldo, Professor of Electrical Engineering, a professional team of administrative, financial, technical and service staff devote themselves to the success of the Laboratory’s faculty, students, and staff.

RLE provides centralized, Laboratory-wide services in five primary areas:

Each area is led by one of RLE’s Assistant Directors: David W. Foss (Information Technology Services), and Richard A. Petruzzelli (Finance.) The Director and the Assistant Directors form RLE’s executive management team.
