Dr. Genevieve M. Haddad, a member of the Senior Executive Service, is the director of chemistry and life sciences, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Arlington, Va. The AFOSR reports to the Air Force Research Laboratory that has headquarters at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. Dr. Haddad is responsible for the $50 million Air Force basic research program in chemistry and life sciences assuring the excellence and relevance of a broad research portfolio encompassing highly specialized areas in organic, inorganic and theoretical chemistry, biological sciences and human performance. Major objectives of this research are to understand and control Air Force relevant molecular processes, to use the molecular perspective to design and tailor materials for Air Force needs and to enable the efficient, effective and safe performance of Air Force warfighters.

Dr. Haddad began her association with the Air Force in 1979 through the Intergovernmental Personnel Act, the government program that transfers academic talent from universities into civil service. She was hired by the AFOSR as a program manager to manage Air Force basic research programs in education and training. Since then, she has managed a number of basic research programs, including those in the following topic areas: human visual information processing, artificial intelligence and image understanding, chronobiology, and neurosciences. From 1984 to 1990, Dr. Haddad served in a variety of headquarters staff positions. She was a member of the management team that provided direct staff oversight for the entire U.S. Air Force science and technology budget. This included oversight of university research, small business innovative research, avionics, flight dynamics, conventional and advanced radiation weapons, human systems and space systems.
