Dr. Jeremy W. Ward is currently a Research Scientist and Program Manager within the Materials and Manufacturing Directorate of the United States Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). He earned his B.A. in Physics and Mathematics from Simpson College in Indianola, IA, in 2010, and his Ph.D. in Physics from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC, in 2015. While earning both his B.A. and Ph.D., Jeremy also served as a crew chief for both F-16 and C-130 airframes in the United States Air National Guard. After completing his Ph.D., Jeremy then worked on staff within the United States Senate as a Science and Technology Policy Fellow, a position supported by the Materials Research Society (MRS) and the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS). In 2016, Jeremy accepted a position as a Research Scientist for UES, Inc. in Dayton, OH, where he performed research in the area of flexible and conformal electronics for the United States Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). In 2017, Jeremy accepted a position with AFRL, where he is leading both R&D of conformal sensing technologies as well as managing programs that address the materials and manufacturing challenges to meet the USAF needs in the area of Airmen Performance and Aeromedicine.
