Dr. Griffin holds a Ph.D. in Operations Research and an M.A. in Mathematics from Penn State. He is currently a Research Associate at the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) at the Pennsylvania State University and an Adjunct Asst. Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Clemson University. He is also the principal investigator for the ONR/NAVSEA Combined Hierarchical Environment for Tracking Anomalies with Hybrid Statistics (CHEETAH) program as well as a program on Deep Social Network Analysis funded by the United States Government.
Before joining ARL, he was a Wigner Fellow at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory as well as the principal investigator for the "Contradiction Based Logic Approach to Hypothesis Generation" program, sponsored by the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency. He was the co-principal investigator for the "Learning and Prediction for Enhanced Readiness and Decision Making" program, sponsored by ONR. Dr. Griffin was the principal investigator for the laboratory directed research and development program, "Inferring Group Social Dynamics via Psycho-Textual and Communications Flow Analysis" which began in FY2009.
Before joining Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Dr. Griffin worked with the Applied Research Laboratory at Penn State for almost seven years as a staff engineer. During this time he served as a Principle System Architect for the "JFACC/IEIST" Program sponsored by DARPA and the Boeing Company. He also served as the test bed coordinator for the ARO "Emergent Surveillance Plexus" MURI as well as the mathematical modeling coordinator for the ONR "Mobile Ubiquitous Security Environment" URI. Before leaving ARL, Dr. Griffin was the Co-PI for the ONR Funded "Learning and Prediction for Enhanced Readiness and Decision Making" program, which transitioned with him to ORNL.
Dr Griffin is also the co-editor of the book, Sensor Network Operations, published by IEEE Press in 2006. His published work has been cited over 180 times.
