Program Manager
Dr. Mark Wrobel joined DARPA as a program manager in the Defense Sciences Office in 2019. His interests include the development of new capabilities for detecting and interdicting threats associated with weapons of mass destruction, including chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats to national security.
Program Manager
Dr. Michael Fiddy joined DARPA as a program manager in the Defense Sciences Office in September 2016. His current interests include fundamental studies of wave-matter interactions from RF to visible light frequencies. Advancing scattering and inverse scattering methods for multiple scattering media leads to new imaging techniques and tools to synthesize 2-D and 3-D materials and structures, including those with sub-wavelength features.
Office Director
Dr. Valerie Browning was named director of DARPA’s Defense Sciences Office (DSO) in December 2017. Dr. Browning has more than 30 years of experience in managing and executing defense-related research and development. Prior to her most recent DARPA appointment, Dr. Browning worked as an independent consultant providing subject matter expertise and strategic planning support to the Department of Defense, Department of Energy, and other government clients in the areas of advanced materials and alternative energy.
Program Manager
Dr. William Carter is a program manager in the Defense Sciences Office. He was formerly the director of the Materials and Microsystems Laboratory at HRL Laboratories. He received his doctorate in applied physics from Harvard University in 1997 and has more than 15 years of experience managing government and industrial materials research programs. His background spans applied physics, materials science, and mechanics.
Program Manager
Major C. David Lewis joined DARPA as a program manager in the Defense Sciences Office (DSO) in January 2018. Trained as an officer and physicist, Maj. Lewis is interested in applying the forefront of fundamental physics in unique ways to DoD challenges using the disciplines of quantum mechanics, space and plasmas, and gravitational physics.
