As a subject matter expert at the Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate, my primary duties include technical and financial oversight of several programs and projects within the human effects portfolio, as well as human effects research planning and strategizing. I also support technology and materiel development, combat development, and acquisition programs. I have been working with the DoD since 2006 and previously served as a human systems engineer at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division. I have a Ph.D. and M.Phil. in cognitive neuroscience from The George Washington University.
