Science Insider has learned that Jason Richwine, an independent public policy analyst, has been appointed as deputy undersecretary of commerce for standards and technology and could start work as soon as today. It's a new position reporting to the NIST director, Walter Copan, who also holds the title of undersecretary of commerce for standards and technology.
Richwine did not return several messages from Science Insider. A NIST spokesperson referred inquiries to the Department of Commerce, of which NIST is one component. The department has not responded to questions about Richwine's status or the scope of his duties.
