May 13, 2019 — Today, the White House announced that Daniel A. Reed will be appointed to be a member of the National Science Board (NSB). Reed will complete the remainder of a six-year term that expires on May 10, 2024.
Reed is a professor of computer science and electrical and computer engineering at the University of Utah. Last year, Reed was appointed to serve as senior vice president for academic affairs at the university as well. Prior to joining the University of Utah, he was chair of computational science and bioinformatics at the University of Iowa. He earned his M.S. and Ph.D. in computer science from Purdue University.
The NSB is comprised of 25 presidentially appointed members and the director of the NSF, who serves in an ex officio capacity. The NSB’s stated duty is to pursue the goals of the NSF, including advocating for “the pursuit of national policies for the promotion of research and education in science and engineering.” The NSB, which meets about five times a year, also sponsors the Vannevar Bush Award and the NSB Public Service Award.
