The explosive growth of global digital connectivity has opened new possibilities for designing and conducting social science research. Once limited by practical constraints to experiments involving just a few dozen participants-often university students or other easily available groups-or to correlational studies of large datasets without any opportunity for determining causation, scientists can now engage thousands of diverse volunteers online and explore an expanded range of important topics and questions.
Program Manager
Lt. Col. C. David Lewis joined DARPA as a program manager in the Defense Sciences Office (DSO) in January 2018. Trained as an officer and physicist, Lt. Col. 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.

Service members need constant supplies of clean water, food, medicines, and materials to complete their missions. BTO is enabling the migration of biotechnology from the lab into the field, creating new opportunities to harden operations against disruption by increasing operational resilience and logistic security.
Although available program funds are typically fully allocated at the start of a program, opportunities sometimes arise 12 – 18 months after program kickoff, when phase 1 performance is being assessed. If you have ideas you think may be of interest to a program, this may be a good time to talk to the PM.
