Overview

Kristin Lynch has led and contributed to research projects on logistics and resource management-related issues for the Air Force and the Office of the Secretary of Defense since 2001. Research areas include options for configuring an agile combat support (ACS) system -- policy, practice, and technology options -- to support current and future military operations; logistical support systems such as, ACS planning, execution, monitoring, and control, forward operating locations, forward support locations, CONUS support locations, the theater distribution system, supply chain management; and resourcing issues such as component major command and numbered Air Force force posture options. Lynch has worked in industry and has numerous publications in the field of logistics. Her education includes an MS from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and a BS from Syracuse University in the field of mathematics.
