Indiana University’s Ostrom Workshop in Bloomington has named Scott Shackelford executive director. Shackelford has served as the workshop’s acting director since August and is currently director of the Ostrom Workshop Program on Cybersecurity and Internet Governance.

Shackelford is also an associate professor of business law and ethics in the IU Kelley School of Business and a senior fellow in the IU Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research. 

Shackelford succeeds Lee Alston, who has stepped down to return to teaching and research after five years of leading the workshop.

“We’re deeply grateful to Lee Alston for his past leadership and service,” said Jeff Zaleski, interim vice provost for research at IU Bloomington. “Going forward, Scott will be an outstanding fit for this important leadership role, and we could not be more pleased to have him at the helm to further elevate the stature of the Ostrom Workshop and foster its growing research agenda.”
