 Hai Nguyen, 2018-20 Executive Branch Fellow, Department of Defense

Hai has 15 years of Physics teaching experience and at the University of Mary Washington, where he was chair of the Department of Physics. There, he taught a very popular freshman seminar course "Physics for Future Presidents and World Leaders" that sought to "advance science, engineering, and innovation throughout the world for the benefit of all people." Because he wanted to continue his effectiveness in using his physics knowledge to address the most important and pressing challenges of our day, Hai later accepted a permanent position in the Pentagon in Nuclear Command, Control, and Communications Future and Cross Cutting Integration, in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, OSD.
