Overview

Jared Mondschein is an associate physical scientist at the RAND Corporation. His technical expertise is in renewable energy storage solutions and carbon capture technologies, having studied materials for the light-driven transformation of water and carbon dioxide into fuels and value-added chemicals during his graduate work at Penn State University. Upon completing his Ph.D. in chemistry in May 2018, he moved to the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies as a fellow in the Center for Revolutionary Scientific Thought and later as a Research Fellow in the S&T Policy division. In that role, Mondschein led projects for DARPA and OSD studying pathways to ensure the long-term cybersecurity of DoD weapons systems via optimal technology transfers, domestic innovation ecosystems, and by securing the defense industrial base. At RAND, he has focused on issues at the intersection of emerging technologies, innovation, their acquisition and implementation by DoD and/or local governments, and the defense industrial base.
