Kate Petersen Mace, who most recently served as director of External Partnership Management at Clemson University, is the newest member of ESnet’s Science Engagement Team.
In addition to her work at Clemson, Mace also served as chair of SCinet at the SC14 conference. The position was a two-year volunteer commitment to manage a diverse team of more than 100 network engineers from around the world to design and deploy a network to make the conference the best-connected site on Earth – for a week, until it’s all taken down.
“One of the most important qualifications Kate brings to the position is the breadth of her experience,” said Lauren Rotman, leader of the Science Engagement Team. “She has earned the respect of the technical community through her frontline experience in engineering and administering networks, including network architecture design and deployment. Kate has also proven herself to be an effective collaborator, forming partnerships and serving as an advocate for new technology in the community.”
