DeLisa to join the Defense Science Study Group
Professor Matt DeLisa, the William L. Lewis Professor of Engineering, has been accepted into the 2014-2015 class of the Defense Science Study Group (DSSG).
The DSSG is a program of education and study that introduces selected scientists and engineering professors to the challenges facing national security and encourages them to apply their talents to these issues either as government advisers or in their own research.
Group members interact with top-level officials from the Defense Department, other government organizations such as the Department of Homeland Security, various intelligence agencies, and Congress. The program, begun in 1986, is directed by the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) and is sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
