Lynette I. Millett

Associate Director

lmillett at nas.edu

Lynette I. Millett is Associate Director of the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board, National Research Council of the National Academies. Ms. Millett has extensive experience as program manager, team leader, analyst, researcher, and writer with specific expertise in information technology policy. She is skilled in working with diverse and expert work groups and since 2000 has been developing, directing, and overseeing National Research Council studies and teams of national experts examining public policy issues related broadly to information technology, computing, software, and communications. Her portfolio at the National Research Council includes a suite of studies on computing research, the most recent being 2012’s Computing Research for Sustainability; several examinations of government IT and infrastructure needs, such as 2011’s Strategies and Priorities for Information Technology at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; and in-depth examinations of privacy, identity and cybersecurity, including 2010’s Biometric Recognition: Challenges and Opportunities. Her policy and program management strengths are informed by a deep technical background. She has a proven track record of leading and working with diverse ad hoc teams to produce actionable, authoritative, and independent advice in fast-moving policy and technical environments. She has an M.Sc. in computer science from Cornell University, where her work was supported by graduate fellowships from the National Science Foundation and the Intel Corporation; and a B.A. with honors in mathematics and computer science from Colby College, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.
