We are proud to announce Dr. Diane Srivastava as the new Director of the CIEE. Dr. Srivastava has been appointed after a nation-wide competition, for the term of three years (2017-2020). Srivastava is a Professor in the University of British Columbia, and a leader in efforts to improve data management and synthesis research. With research interests ranging from basic to applied science, and experience leading working groups, Dr. Srivastava will bring her learning experiences to the Direction of the CIEE . 

Peter Leavitt will be co-director and Diego Steinaker will be associate director with Diane for the next year to help with transitioning the directorship of CIEE.  The Management Board thanks both Peter and Diego for their vision and continued support and for their hard work over the past 5 years that has enabled the CIEE to grow and establish a sound footing in the Canadian Ecology and Evolution community.
