Former Defense Department Executive Christine Fox Joins Applied Physics Lab's National Security Analysis Team
Christine Fox, who until recently served as Director of Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation (CAPE) in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, has joined the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Md., as a principal technical advisor.
"We are very pleased Christine decided to join APL," says APL Director Ralph Semmel. "Christine brings to us a wealth of experience and strategic insights that will help us better support our sponsors and the nation."
In her new role, Fox will provide strategic advice and counsel across the Lab's sponsors and stakeholders.
Fox's most recent assignment was supporting the Deputy Secretary of Defense's leadership of the Defense Department's Strategic Choices and Management Review, which is expected to play an important role in helping to prioritize defense budgets during the coming years.
Prior to her presidential appointment at CAPE in 2009, Fox served as president of the Center for Naval Analyses, the Department of the Navy's federally funded research and development center.
The Applied Physics Laboratory, a not-for-profit division of The Johns Hopkins University, meets critical national challenges through the innovative application of science and technology. For more information, visit www.jhuapl.edu.
