I have an unconventional background for a chief scientist at a major laboratory of the United States Army: I was born and raised in the Soviet Union. In 1980, I came to the United States as a refugee and began work here as an engineer in manufacturing and engineering at a heavy equipment company in western Pennsylvania. In the late 1980s I completed a PhD in artificial intelligence (AI), then joined Carnegie Group, an early AI company, where I worked on projects with the US military and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). After 9/11, I joined DARPA as a program manager. I developed advanced technologies, mostly around command and control and decision-making in military environments. In 2017, I became the US Army Research Laboratory’s chief scientist.
