Dr. José Muñoz, acting director of the National Science Foundation’s Office of Cyberinfrastructure, has been named the new chief technology officer.
“We want to thank Dr. Muñoz for the leadership and direction he provided to the Office of Cyberinfrastructure,” OCI said in an announcement. “We are especially grateful to him for serving as acting head, OCI, since August 2009.”
In his new role, Muñoz will focus on relations with external communities on IT and cyber infrastructure, enhance the outreach activities of the NSF units involved with research on and development of IT, and serve as a resource in bridging research and deployment.
OCI’s Acting Deputy Director Alan Blatecky will serve as acting head until a replacement has been found.
