The Policy@Tech consortium continues its academic speaker series with Amy Pritchett, an associate professor in the School of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Tech, on "The Intersection of Technology and Policy in Aviation Safety"

Abstract:
The Director of NASA's Aviation Safety Program acts not just as the program's executive, but also serves several policy functions.  One is co-chairing the 'Aviation Safety' Interagency Working Group of the Aeronautics Science and Technology Subcommittee within the Committee of Technology convened by the National Science and Technology Council, and thus authoring the chapter on Aviation Safety within the Office of Science and Technology Policy's National Aeronautics R & D Plan.  Another is serving on the executive committee or advisory board of several public-private partnerships, including the Commercial Aviation Safety Team (CAST) and the Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing (ASIAS) initiative.  In this talk, Amy Pritchett will discuss her experiences in these capacities while on an IPA to NASA.  Of note, several interesting intersections of technology and policy will be explored, including the role of aviation safety research as an enabler of the aviation industry, and trade-offs between various public and private mechanisms for analyzing proprietary flight data for emerging safety concerns. 

About Policy@Tech:
Policy@Tech (www.policy.gatech.edu) is a consortium of Georgia Tech's five policy research centers, working together to increase Georgia Tech's impact in public policy.
