New Program Managers

DARPA program managers address national security challenges from every possible technology angle and recognize that success comes from attracting the help of scientists and engineers across many different disciplines—in academia, government labs, and companies large and small. Featured here are program managers who have arrived at the Agency within the past six months. They bring with them fresh ideas and priorities, and a sense of urgency to take advantage of their positions at DARPA to catalyze the creation of truly radical technologies. We encourage you to reach out to them as they develop their portfolios of new DARPA programs to share research proposals that reflect your dreams of new capabilities and technologies.
