David Morse is the Chief of the Technology Partnerships Office and Dean of Students at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California’s Silicon Valley. There he leads efforts to craft creative partnerships with commercial companies, start-ups, non-profits, academia, and government agencies to provide access to the NASA-developed technologies that enable the nation’s aeronautics and space missions. In this way, NASA innovations with commercial potential are assimilated into the private sector where they spur the creation of new markets, new products, and new jobs that both serve the economy and enhance the quality of life on Earth. As Dean of Students, he advises and advocates for an intern population that reaches up to 1,000 students during the summer at Ames.

Morse was born in London, England, and immigrated with his family to Calgary, Alberta, Canada when he was 12. He attended Fairview School, Henry Wise Wood High School, and the University of Calgary. He holds B.A. and M.A. degrees in Economics with Honors from the University of Calgary and a Ph.D. (ABD) from the University of California, Berkeley. He is a recipient of the prestigious Governor General’s Gold Medal, the NASA Exceptional Service Medal, and numerous Honor awards. He resides in San Jose, California.
