Adm. James Stavridis, formerly commander of NATO Forces, has joined Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory as a senior fellow.
APL’s senior fellows program works to combine technology and policy in an effort to meet the requirements of U.S. military leaders and government officials, the laboratory said Tuesday.
“We are honored to welcome Jim to our Senior Fellows program and the Johns Hopkins community, ” said Ralph Semmel, APL director.
Semmel added APL appointed Stavridis to help in the lab’s national security work as it seeks to further build its “ability to develop solutions to critical global challenges.”
Stavridis served as the supreme allied commander of the NATO Alliance in global operations between 2009 and 2013.
He has also held a leadership role over the U.S. Southern Command’s military operations in Latin America.
