CNAS Welcomes Andrew Metrick as Defense Fellow

Washington, December 13, 2022—The Center for a New American Security is pleased to welcome Andrew Metrick as a Fellow in the Defense Program.

Metrick's research focuses on the linkages between strategic objectives and operational plans with a specific interest in understanding the implications of protracted, global conflict against peer states. In this capacity, he employs a range of qualitative and quantitative research tools to include operations research, geographic information system analysis, open-source collection, and wargaming.

Prior to joining CNAS, Metrick was a campaign analyst and wargamer at Northrop Grumman. In this role, he conducted strategic and theater level analysis to quantify munitions, posture, and logistics implications of peer conflict. Early in his career, Metrick was an Associate Fellow with the International Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies where he published several studies focused on maritime issues in Asia and Europe.

"We are thrilled to have Andrew joining the defense team at CNAS," said Stacie Pettyjohn, Senior Fellow and Director of the Defense Program.
