Kei Koizumi's "About" on Linkedin
I'm Kei Koizumi. I'm now... between jobs, not employed, whatever. I was recently a Senior Advisor in Science Policy at AAAS. I was Assistant Director for Federal Research and Development and Senior Advisor to the Director for the National Science and Technology Council at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). I am known as a leading authority on the federal budget, federal support for research and development, science and technology policy, and R&D funding data. I was the chief advisor on S&T budgets, appropriations, and indicators for the President's science advisor / Director of OSTP. I also worked to formulate, implement, and coordinate Federal R&D policy in collaboration with OSTP staff, other White House offices, Federal agencies, Congress, and the S&T community, especially through the National Science and Technology Council.

Before serving on the Obama-Biden transition team in 2008-2009, I was the Director of the R&D Budget and Policy Program at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), where I was the principal budget analyst, editor, and writer for the annual AAAS reports on federal R&D and the continually updated analyses of federal R&D on the AAAS R&D web site. I've been quoted in the general and trade press on federal science funding issues and I continue to speak on R&D funding trends and federal budget policy toward R&D to numerous public groups and seminars.
I received my M.A. from the Center for International Science, Technology, and Public Policy program at the George Washington University (where I have since returned to teach part-time) and my B.A. from Boston University in Political Science and Economics. I'm a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Congress established the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) through the National Science and Technology Policy, Organization, and Priorities Act of 1976 (P.L. 94-282). The act states, “The primary function of the OSTP Director is to provide, within the Executive Office of the President [EOP], advice on the scientific, engineering, and technological aspects of issues that require attention at the highest level of Government.” Further, “The Office shall serve as a source of scientific and technological analysis and judgment for the President with respect to major policies, plans, and programs of the Federal Government.”
OSTP also leads interagency science and technology policy coordination efforts, assists the Office of Management and Budget with an annual review and analysis of federal research and development in budgets, and serves as a source of scientific and technological analysis and judgment for the President with respect to major policies, plans, and programs of the Federal Government, according to Whitehouse.
