NSF DD Describes His Experience

March 8th, 2011 by Erwin Gianchandani Post a comment »

Keith Marzullo, a Division Director within the NSF’s CISE Directorate, recently sat down to describe his experiences working at the National Science Foundation.

“As a Division Director of [Computer and Network Systems] — CNS — I have a very broad view of what now is going on in research in my area. I’m going to conferences I never went to, because it’s now my job to understand what’s going on — and it’s really exciting. I’m getting a birds-eye view of everything that’s going on in the nation in terms of research in computer networks and computer systems. I wish I had done this 10 years ago. I think, had I done so, then that would have changed the direction of my research — given me a broader view, allowed me to see more of what’s going on.”

Check out the full video — which really captures the value of professional service, both to the individual and to the community — below:
