Mark Moran, of Strafford, was recently promoted to senior scientific technical manager at the Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory. In his new role, Moran will help furnish advanced scientific and technical guidance, perform and manage research and development, and carry out technical planning and oversight. Moran most recently served as ERDC’s technical director for terrestrial and geospatial sciences and military programs. He joined CRREL’s technical staff in 1986 as a research geophysicist.

More recently, he has focused exclusively on the counter-IED challenge, leading a number of task force initiatives. Moran earned a bachelor’s degree in physics from Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia and holds master’s and a doctorate degrees in geophysics from the Pennsylvania State University.
