Frost Begins Assignment at National Science Foundation

March 9, 2009
 
Victor Frost  Victor Frost, Dan F. Servey distinguished professor of EECS, has taken on a position as a program director in the Computer and Network Systems division of the Computer and Information Science And Engineering directorate at NSF. He is working with the Networking Technology and Systems (NeTS) program within CNS. NeTS research supports the development of pervasive networks, available anytime, anywhere. Accessible from any communication device, future networks will be resilient to failures and malicious attacks. These dynamic architectures, protocols, and technologies will evolve to accommodate growth and change.
 
After 11 years, Frost stepped down as director of the Information and Telecommunication Technology Center (ITTC) in August. ITTC affiliated faculty generated more than $55 million in research expenditures under his leadership. Frost has held senior administrative positions with ITTC and a predecessor lab since 1987.
 
Frost is the fifth EECS professor to work within federal research agencies. For more than a decade, EECS faculty have helped set the nation's research agenda in computing, communications, and sensors.
