Brigham Young University alumnus Brandon Carter joined the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) as a summer associate in the Strategy, Forces and Resources Division of IDA’s Systems and Analyses Center. He credits his time in our M.S. program with providing him quality research experiences that helped him explain his master's project which made up a large portion of his interview. Congratulations Brandon.
