September 16, 1996

This material is available primarily for archival purposes. Telephone numbers or other contact information may be out of date; please see current contact information at media contacts.

The National Science Foundation has named Linda Massaro to head its Office of Information and Resource Management (OIRM). Currently employed at the State Department, Massaro will assume her NSF position October 7.

Massaro brings to NSF a varied background in both management and technical areas. Her experience encompasses both civilian and military environments, and both civil and foreign service.

Since 1994, she has held the position of Deputy Assistant Secretary for Personnel at the State Department. She has also filled senior management positions at the Department of Agriculture; Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps; and Naval Material Command. Before moving into management, Massaro pursued a technical track which included research and testing at the Naval Ship R&D Center.

Massaro earned a Bachelor of Science in Physics and Mathematics from the University of Richmond, and a Master of Science in Administration in Management Engineering from George Washington University.

As head of OIRM at NSF, Massaro will join the Director's Policy Group and will lead a wide range of service activities encompassing human resources, information systems and infrastructure. She will also oversee NSF's continuing progress towards paperless grant processing through the new information technology called FastLane, an interactive service on the World Wide Web.
