Dr. Jeffrey Rogers joined DARPA as a program manager in the Microsystems Technology Office in June 2008. A common thread of his programs is using intrinsic problem complexities to enable new or improved functionality. In many cases, this involves harnessing dynamics or gaining additional understanding from using a different perspective; using nonlinearity in MEMS/NEMS to enhance capabilities, managing laser instabilities, developing quantum engineering to enable design of mesoscopic devices, and early detection of traumatic brain injury.
Prior to joining DARPA Dr. Rogers was simultaneously a research scientist in Computational Physics at HRL Laboratories (Malibu) and visiting faculty at California Institute of Technology in Control and Dynamical Systems. On the industrial side, he was responsible for a lab-wide effort applying nonlinear sciences. Projects included self-organizing laser arrays, managing group behavior of UAVs, and millimeter wave devices. On the academic side, he worked on MEMS/NEMS, statistical mechanics, multiscale modeling, and condensed matter physics.
Dr. Rogers has earned four degrees in physics: a Ph.D. from Georgia Institute of Technology (2001) emphasizing nonlinear science and fluid mechanics, a M.S. from Emory University (1996) with emphasis on condensed matter and complex systems, a M.S. from Florida Atlantic University (1994) focusing on applied mathematics and computational science, and a B.S. from Florida Atlantic University emphasizing dynamical systems and theoretical biology.
