Changes in INES Leadership

It’s been an honor to serve as your INES chair for the past year and as Vice Chair working with Astushi Akera for the previous two. I’ll be stepping down at the end of December 2022 in order to step into the Editor-in-Chief role of our journal Engineering Studies. I adore scholarly publishing and am thrilled for the opportunity to build on what Gary Downey and Cyrus Mody have built for our intellectual community. Please look for upcoming announcements and opportunities to plan for the journal’s next stages.

I’m thrilled to announce that Brent Jesiek (Purdue) will be stepping in as chair. If you know our network, you know that Brent has been a key figure in its development. He’s been serving as our webmaster for as long as I’ve been familiar with the network and does a lot of work behind the scenes to keep the membership enrollments and listservs going.

Please join me in thanking Brent, Cyrus and Atsushi for all their contributions to this network!
