Portrait of Jessica Stewart, Director, SFRD

Jessica Stewart

The Strategy, Forces and Resources Division is a multi-disciplinary team that leverages extensive government, military and research expertise to assess the most pressing national security issues. Our research focus encompasses issues of strategy, policy, force structure, human capital and defense capabilities. SFRD's work primarily supports the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the National Guard Bureau, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, combatant commands and the military services. Accordingly, the SFRD team mirrors its projects in diversity; with expertise coming from the private sector, military/government, academia across various disciplines. While large and diverse, SFRD fosters a collegial culture of shared values for rigorous research with honesty and integrity.
