Elizabeth Warren, Harvard Law professor and economic thinker, has been appointed to chair the five-person Congressional oversight panel for the $700 billion bailout fund. A list of her areas of expertise can be found at Harvard Law School's Elizabeth Warren page.

Warren has a significant web presence, running a blog on Talking Points Memo and, previously, this site.
