Lewis Elected to IEEE CS Board of Governors

By Jen Potter

This past fall, MSE alumna Grace Lewis (2001), long-time project mentor, and a former member of the Executive Committee and Admissions Committee, was elected to the IEEE CS Board of Governors. The IEEE CS is one of the best-known resource organizations for technology professionals. In addition to being an IEEE senior member, Lewis serves as the treasurer of the IEEE Computer Society Technical & Conference Activities Board (T&C) Executive Committee, and the executive vice-chair for the IEEE Computer Society Technical Council on Software Engineering (TCSE).

This month she begins her two-year term on the IEEE CS Board of Governors, which sets the Society’s direction and strategy, provides policy guidance to program boards and committees, and reviews the performance of the organization. Among her many goals for her tenure is the support of minorities and early-career researchers and practitioners in the field; an improved gender balance; and the creation of more opportunities for less privileged parts of the world.

Lewis is a principal researcher in the SEI’s Software Solutions Division (SSD) and serves as the lead of the Tactical and AI-enabled Systems (TAS) initiative. Her interests include software engineering for AI/ML systems, IoT security, edge computing, software architecture (in particular the development of software architecture practices for systems that integrate emerging technologies), and software engineering in society.
