PhD wins scholarship for research on military synthetic training
Jennifer McArdle received one of three RADM Fred Lewis doctoral scholarships for her research on military synthetic training and adversary computer network operations.
Jennifer McArdle, a PhD candidate in the Cyber Security Research Group in the Department of War Studies received one of three RADM Fred Lewis doctoral scholarships for her research on military synthetic training and adversary computer network operations. The RADM Fred Lewis Scholarship provided by the Inter-service/ Industry, Training, Simulation and Education (I/ITSEC) conference is the world’s largest modeling, simulation, and training conference. The RADM Fred Lewis scholarship provides $10K for doctoral students whose research involves modeling, simulation, training, human factors, or operations research.
Jennifer said, “Being a scholarship awardee was a fantastic opportunity, as the National Training and Simulation Association flew the scholarship awardees to Orlando to participate at I/ITSEC 2017. We had the opportunity to network with individuals involved in military synthetic training and were also provided the opportunity to participate in their future paper panels.”
Her supervisor, Dr. Walter Ladwig said, “Winning this award further marks Jennifer out as a rising star in the field of modeling and simulation.”
