Senior Program Associate Khari Douglas is leaving the CRA and the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) after six years. After graduating from the Johns Hopkins University in 2015, Douglas began working for the CCC as a Program Associate, quickly proving himself an essential asset and becoming a Senior Program Associate in 2019.
During his time with the CCC, Douglas made a lasting impact on the organization running countless workshops, supporting members of the council, acting as the unofficial IT person, and revamping and maintaining the CCC website for clearer communications with the community. One of his greatest contributions was taking the initiative to start a podcast, “Catalyzing Computing” where he interviewed members of the computing research community and provided the opportunity for all to get to know researchers and their work on a more personal level.
Khari will be pursuing his passion for podcasting in his new position on the editing team of the National Geographic podcast “Overheard at National Geographic”. His episodes of Catalyzing Computing will still be available for listening on Youtube or Soundcloud.
We wish Khari luck in his new position and thank him for all his hard work on behalf of the computing research community!
