Mr. Keith Rebello joined DARPA in October 2018 as a program manager in the Microsystems Technology Office (MTO). His research interests include materials, devices, and architectures for artificial intelligence, space, and cyber operations.
Recently Mr. Rebello served as the technical director for emerging technologies and technical lead for emerging threats in the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence while on loan from the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL)’s Cyber Operations Mission Area. While at JHU/APL, he served as a program manager for the Navy’s next generation sub launched ballistic missile system, and oversaw $100M in R&D funding for the Office of the Secretary of Defense’s Prompt Global Strike hypersonic weapons program. He also served as chief scientist and chief engineer for groups researching aerospace materials, robotics and rapid prototyping, microelectronics, and microsystems. His research focused on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and ultra-low power integrated circuits for the defense, intelligence, and space communities. Earlier in his career, Mr. Rebello was the first technical employee at Verimetra--a minimally invasive surgical tool startup. He also worked at Intel Corporation, where he helped ramp a fab from technology development to manufacturing.
Mr. Rebello has received the Hart Prize for best development project for his work on a MEMS beamforming hydrophone as well as the Hart Prize for best research project for his work on DNA sequencing. He has authored more than 30 technical journal and conference papers, three book chapters, and has served as an instructor teaching MEMS systems engineering at the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering. In addition, Mr. Rebello was a member of the adjunct faculty at the U.S. Naval Academy, where he taught applications of cyber engineering.
Mr. Rebello received a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from Virginia Tech and Master of Science degrees in electrical and computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and applied biomedical engineering from the Johns Hopkins University.
