Jeannette Wing New CISE AD at NSF
Since it’s apparently official, we can spread the word that the new head of NSF’s Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate is Jeannette Wing, president’s professor and head of the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon. Jeanette takes over for Peter Freeman, who served as CISE AD since 2002. Jeannette will take over CISE starting July 1, 2007.
Those who know Jeannette will likely agree that the computing community is lucky to have someone with her passion and energy for the field ready (and willing) to take such a critical position. We at CRA join in wishing her the best of luck and stand willing to help as she takes the reins.
