Craig Lee
Senior Scientist

Dr. Craig A. Lee is a Senior Scientist in the Computer Systems Research Department of the Aerospace Corporation. He has worked in high-performance parallel and distributed computing for the last thirty years. This work has led to Dr. Lee's involvement in the Open Grid Forum (OGF) where he served as President from 2007 to 2010, and facilitated the global federation of “big science” computing grids. Dr. Lee served as the main liaison between OGF and the DMTF, SNIA, TMF, the Open Cloud Consortium, Cloud Security Alliance, OMG, and OASIS. Dr. Lee is now on the OGF Board of Directors and heavily involved with NIST, having contributed significantly to the NIST Cloud Standards Roadmap, the NIST Cloud Technology Roadmap, and now sits on the NIST Federated Cloud WG. He has served on the program committee for many conferences and workshops, as a panelist for the NSF, NASA, DOE, and as an international evaluator for INRIA. He is an associate editor of Future Generation Computing Systems (Elsevier) and on the editorial board of the International Journal of Cloud Computing (Inderscience). Dr. Lee has published over 75 technical works, including four book chapters and seven edited volumes and issues. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine.
