Dr. Regina E. Dugan is the 19th director of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the principal agency within the Department of Defense for research, development and demonstration of high-risk, high-payoff capabilities. DARPA has persisted as a critical-mass collection of some of the best and brightest technical visionaries for the Department and the Nation for more than 50 years.

With a doctorate in mechanical engineering from Caltech and master’s and bachelor’s degrees from Virginia Tech, Dr. Dugan is a business woman, inventor, and technology developer who rolls up her sleeves and goes directly to a problem whether it’s in the lab or in Afghanistan. She’s been called a “technogeek” with a knack for inspiring creative thinking, an artist-engineer. Many credit Dugan as a scientific coach, mentor, cheerleader and taskmaster. As a 2010 New York Times article explained, there are four stages to an encounter with Regina Dugan – “being a little scared, really scared, frustrated and then enlightened.” Vision alone is insufficient for Dugan; for herself or for DARPA. Rather, vision must be paired with the power of execution in order to make impossible things possible.
