Careers in intelligence subject for BYU David M. Kennedy Center lecture Sept. 29

D. Calvin Andrus of the Office of Public Affairs for the Central Intelligence Agency will discuss “Career Reflections: Intelligence” at a Brigham Young University David M. Kennedy Center lecture Thursday, Sept. 29, at 4 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Over a 28-year career, Andrus has served as a regional political analyst, an IT program manager, an enterprise applications architect and an innovation officer.

His general area of interest lies at the conjunction of intelligence analysis, innovation, and information technology, and his current focus is on the intelligence applications of massive data analytics, simulations, and virtual worlds.

He was awarded the Intelligence Community's 2004 Galileo Award for his paper, “The Wiki and the Blog: Toward a Complex Adaptive Intelligence Community." Andrus received bachelor's and master's degrees in political science from BYU and a doctorate from State University of New York at Stony Brook.
