Jim Kroll has been the Director of Research Integrity and Administrative Investigations for the National Science Foundation’s Office of the Inspector General since April 2001. In this role, Jim is primarily responsible for leading the investigation and resolution of all allegations that, if substantiated, would result in administrative action rather than civil or criminal prosecution. These include allegations of: research misconduct under NSF proposals and awards; certain types of employee misconduct; violations of NSF regulations, policy or directives; improprieties in program management that can not be practicably resolved by management itself; and other issues that are not of a civil/criminal nature.
Prior to working for the OIG, Jim served 21 years as a meteorological officer with the U.S. Air Force. Jim completed his undergraduate studies at Rutgers University where he received his B.S. in Meteorology in 1980. He later attended North Carolina State University where he received his M.S. in Atmospheric Sciences in 1985 and his Ph.D. in 1988.
