National Science Board of the National Science Foundation (NSF); division director for Research, Evaluation and Communication in NSF’s Directorate for Education and Human Resources (1993-1998); and (on detail) assistant director for Social and Behavioral Sciences (and Education) at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (1997). He began his federal career in 1986 at the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment. Chubin has also served on the faculty of four universities, including Georgia Institute of Technology, where he was promoted to full professor. Since 1991, he has been an adjunct professor at the Cornell in Washington Program. He has published eight books and numerous policy reports, articles, and commentaries on issues in science policy, human resource development, program evaluation, and engineering education. Among his honors are the following: AAAS fellow, past chair of the AAAS Section on Societal Impacts of Science and Engineering, fellow of the Association for Women in Science, co-recipient of the American Society of Engineering Education Wickenden Award for best paper published in the 2003 volume of the Journal of Engineering Education, Quality Education for Minorities/Mathematics, Science, and Engineering 2006 Giant of Science, and Sigma Xi Distinguished Lecturer 2007-2009. Today, he participates on the board of directors of three not-for-profit organizations and on the editorial board of three professional journals. Chubin has a B.A. in sociology from Miami University and a Ph.D. in sociology from Loyola University of Chicago.

Joanne Cohoon is an associate professor at the Department of Science, Technology, and Society at the University of Virginia. She teaches gender, technology, and education and supervises both graduate and undergraduate student research. Cohoon is a sociologist who researches, publishes, and speaks on women’s underrepresentation in Information Technology (IT) and on gender segregation in higher education. She has conducted nationwide studies of departmental factors that influence recruitment and retention at the undergraduate and graduate levels of computer science. Cohoon is a senior research scientist at the National Center for Women in IT Social Science Network; and a member of the Georgia Tech College of Computing Diversity Advisory Board, the PROACT Advisory Board, and the Working Committee on Women in Computing of Association for Computing Machinery Committee on Women in Computing. She has a B.A. in philosophy from Ramapo College, New Jersey, an M.A. in student personnel administration in higher education from Columbia University, and a Ph.D. in sociology (dissertation, “Non-Parallel Processing: Gendered Attrition in Academic Computer Science”) from the University of Virginia.

Keith Crank is the research and graduate education manager at American Statistical Association (ASA). Prior to joining the ASA, he was a program officer at NSF, primarily in the probability program. Crank has a B.S. in mathematics education, an M.S. in mathematics from Michigan State University, and a Ph.D. in statistics from Purdue University.

Ingrid Daubechies received both her B.S. and Ph.D. degrees (in 1975 and 1980) from the Free University in Brussels, Belgium. She held a research position at the Free University until 1987. From 1987 to 1994, she was a member of the technical staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories, during which time she took leaves to spend 6 months (in 1990) at the University of Michigan and 2 years (1991-1993) at Rutgers University. From 1993 to 2010, Daubechies was a full professor at Princeton University, where she was active especially within the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics. She was the first female full professor of mathematics at Princeton. In January 2011, she moved to Duke University to serve as a professor of mathematics. Daubechies is the first woman president of the International Mathematical Union (2011-2014). Her research interests focus on the mathematical aspects of time-frequency
