Dr. Abby Ilumoka, professor of electrical and computer engineering (ECE) in the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA), has been appointed Program Director for Engineering Education at the National Science Foundation (NSF) effective September 2015.

The NSF, based in Arlington, Va., is the federal agency that supports fundamental research across all fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) conducted by America’s colleges and universities.  Ilumoka will serve in the directorate for Education and Human Resources under the Division of Undergraduate Education.

“I am excited about the opportunity to impact U.S. national policy on STEM in ways that will ensure the U.S. continued global pre-eminence and believe that my years of teaching, research, and service as professor of ECE at the University of Hartford have prepared me well for the position,” Ilumoka said.

Ilumoka’s research specialization is in the area of integrated circuit optimization using artificial intelligence, work for which she has received competitive public- and private-sector funding including three NSF research grants during her 24-year tenure in CETA.

Ilumoka is on a leave of absence during the 2015–16 academic year.
