Jennifer Chayes

Jennifer Chayes, of Microsoft Research (formerly in Math at UCLA) was just named director of a new Microsoft Research Lab in Cambridge.

She is well-known to the Network Science crowd, doing good work in statistical physics. She also knows social networks. Good choice by Microsoft. Nice piece in yesterday's New York Times: Microsoft Adds Research Lab in East as Others Cut Back.

From the article:

The work she did in developing simple models of certain liquids and solids turned out to be useful in the study of random, self-engineered networks like the Internet. And some of Dr. Chayes’s insights into theoretical computer science have recently led to the development of some exceedingly fast networking algorithms.
