NASA Selects Jaiwon Shin to Head Aeronautics Research

Jaiwon Shin has been named as NASA's associate administrator for the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate in Washington.

As the associate administrator, Shin will be responsible for managing the agency's aeronautics research portfolio and guiding its strategic direction. This portfolio includes research in the fundamental aeronautics of flight, aviation safety and the nation's airspace system. Prior to this appointment, Shin served as the deputy associate administrator for aeronautics.

"Jaiwon brings expert knowledge of aeronautics and technology to a critical position at NASA," NASA Administrator Michael Griffin says. "He's helped develop the aeronautics research roadmap for the 21st century. His leadership of the directorate will assure our continued recognition as the world's premiere aeronautics research organization."

Before coming to NASA headquarters in 2004, Shin served as chief of the aeronautics projects office at NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland. In this position, he had management responsibility for all aeronautics projects managed at the center. Prior to that, he was the deputy director of aeronautics at the center, providing executive leadership for the planning and implementation of the aeronautics program at Glenn.

"I am honored to have been chosen for this position and look forward to building on the strong foundation that my predecessor, Lisa Porter, established for NASA aeronautics," Shin says. "NASA's aeronautics programs develop the concepts, tools, methods and technologies that address many of the challenges faced by our nation in air traffic management, safety and the environment. We will continue our commitment to meet these challenges through technical excellence, integrity and strong partnerships with other government agencies, industry and academia."
