“Former MIT President Susan J. Hockfield will be the Harvard Kennedy School’s (HKS) Marie Curie Visiting Professor this academic year, the school’s Dean, David T. Ellwood, announced on Friday. Ellwood and other members of the HKS faculty had several discussions with Hockfield, after which she was nominated and approved by tenured faculty. She will be affiliated with the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, and will continue to serve as a professor of neuroscience at MIT.
‘She has expressed serious interest in how scientists and technologists can have greater impact on policy,’ wrote the Belfer Center’s director, Graham Allison, in an email to The Tech. ‘That is a central question for the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, so we look forward to collaboration with her and others.’”
