Negar has been selected as a DARPA Riser and will be recognized at D60, DARPA’s 60th anniversary symposium to be held in September. The DARPA Riser Session at D60 is an opportunity for the Risers to present their ideas to the DARPA technical and leadership team, including office directors, deputy directors, and program managers. The office directors and deputy directors will select 10 DARPA Risers to present 5-minute talks to the DARPA technical and leadership team, summarizing their poster content. Of these 10, three will be selected to present their talks in a D60 Plenary Session on the morning of September 7. Negar was nominated by the DARPA program manager Troy Olsson, who manages the SPAR program that was based in part on Negar’s work.
