BIO:  Dr. Robert Ulman

Dr. Robert Ulman has been running the U.S. Army Research Office (ARO) Network Science and Intelligence Systems Program since January 2017.  In this role, Dr. Ulman established a new basic research program within the network science discipline that encompasses European, African, Israel, and Middle Eastern countries.  This entails identification and assessment of basic research that is applicable to Army, funding this research, and facilitating collaborations with Army scientists and transitions.  In addition, he acts as an advisor and ARO liaison to the Distributed Analytics and Information Science International Technology Alliance (DAIS-ITA), which is a collaborative effort between US Army Research Lab (ARL) and the UK Defense Science and Technical Lab (DSTL).

Previously, Dr. Ulman was the program manager for the Wireless Communications and Networks program at ARO, primarily funding U.S. universities.  At ARO, he built a research program in wireless communications networking, concentrating on research that is applicable to the tactical mobile battlefield.  His program also included social networking for several years until this research area was spun off into a new program. 

Dr. Ulman received his BS in electrical engineering from Virginia Tech in 1984, his MS from The Ohio State University in 1986, his PhD from University of Maryland in 1998. 

Delivered By: Dr Robert Ulman, US Army Research Office
