Christina Williams, associate provost for budget and planning at Brandeis, has been named to the Homeland Security Science and Technology Advisory Committee.

The federal committee provides scientific and technical advice to the Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson and senior department leadership on matters related to the expansion of technological capabilities across the homeland security enterprise.

Williams will advise on issues related to organization strategy and management, drawing on her experience as the lead administrator of a multi-disciplinary lab at a major research university.

“This is a very exciting opportunity to be able to interact with some very seasoned individuals across so many sectors, cyber security, chemical and biological defense and first response,” said Williams. “We are charged with providing advice to the Department of Homeland Security on how to prioritize the divergent needs to protect the security of our country, funding needed for research, and ways in which to partner with universities and industry.”

Williams’ appointment is for three years and is renewable for one additional term.
