After serving almost four years at CRA, Kenneth Hines will be leaving CRA to return to a research career at Teaching Strategies in Bethesda, Maryland. When Kenneth joined CRA in 2010, he was primarily responsible for data analysis on undergraduate and graduate computing students through the “Data Buddies” project with the Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research (CRA-W). He also analyzed Ph.D. and postdoctoral data using a wide range of data sources, including NSF’s Survey of Doctorate Recipients (SDR) and CRA’s annual Taulbee survey.
In June 2012, Kenneth transitioned to a new position within CRA, a Program Associate for the Computing Community Consortium (CCC). In this position, he has been a frequent contributor to the CCC Blog, Research Highlight of the Week, Computing Research in Action and Computing Research News. CCC would like to commend Kenneth for providing strong leadership during September 2012 through March 2013. During that time, in the absence of a CCC Director, Kenneth worked closely with the CCC executive committee to help establish CCC directions and priorities, and organized several CCC visioning activities among many other responsibilities.
It’s been a pleasure to work with Kenneth over the years. While he will be missed at CRA and CCC, we wish him the best as he returns to a career in research and evaluation.
