Dr. Kelvin Droegemeier’s experience as a university Administrator in Oklahoma, as founder and director of NSF’s Science and Technology Center for Analysis and Prediction of Storms and the NSF Engineering Research Center for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere, and as vice-chair of the National Science Board will serve him well in this role.
