By Ashley Gold

Deirdre Mulligan is stepping into the role of Principal Deputy U.S. Chief Technology Officer following Alexander Macgillivray's last day Wednesday, per an internal note seen by Axios. 

Driving the news: Mulligan has quickly ascended the ranks at OSTP. A professor at the University of California, Berkeley, she joined the White House earlier this year and served as one of Macgillivray’s deputies...

What they're saying: "I’ve been wanting to work with (or for) Deirdre for more than 20 years and I’m grateful she joined us in February and is taking on the new role," Macgillivray writes in the note...


Deirdre Mulligan is a professor at the I School focusing on legal and technical means of protecting values such as privacy, freedom of expression, and fairness in emerging technical systems. She joined the White House as deputy United States chief technology officer for policy in early 2023.
