What can you imagine to be possible when a populace of curiosity adheres itself to an international network of boundless researchers? Arizona State University and Leonardo/The International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology are embarking on this new initiative led by Executive Director Diana Ayton-Shenker.

While we don't have the answers to what will be, we are starting with the question posed by Ayton-Shenker, “How do we become more human and more humane?”

In her first weeks as Executive Director of the partnership and CEO of Leonardo/ISAST, she will be engaging with community stakeholders to get a sense of how our uniqueness and similarities have created and can create an impact on 21st-century problems.

This partnership provides leadership for the advancement of ASU's work in the area of art-science research and creative activity and amplifies the university's international profile in the field. The partnership catapults Leonardo/ISAST and its constituent programs to a new level of growth and market presence and provides long-term continuity for the organization.

Please welcome Diana to our team and read more about her background.
