Dr. Sloan’s 20 years of active duty in the U.S. Air Force coupled with her Ph.D. and master’s degree in Psychology and a bachelor’s degree in International and Comparative Political Science have developed a deep perspective across many cross-cutting issues regarding national security and future command and control. Her experience as an Intelligence and Operations Officer, created a profound appreciation for strategic level examination of key issues associated with organizational and force design transformation.
Before joining Potomac Institute, Dr. Sloan most recently served in the newly established Air Force Futures directorate at Headquarters Air Force in Washington DC. In this role she led the development of key concepts that were core to the development of a new Air Force future force design, specifically the development of a game changing sensing grid concept. This concept reoriented $19 billion to support operations and over $375 million in key experiments to advance development of Joint All Domain Command and Control. Dr Sloan’s collaborative and innovative approach brings fresh perspective to the Institute, ensuring our team provides novel and relevant solutions to our clientele through our publications and events.
