    NPWG Hosts Dr. Andrew Reddie on Wargaming

    5:30 pmRSVP at

    Join us in welcoming Dr. Andrew Reddie, who will be presenting "From Art to Science: Analytical Wargaming and Behavioral Research"!

    Wargames have traditionally served a variety of roles—from education and training to analysis. Recently, the analytical applications of wargaming methods have been the source of considerable debate given concerns surrounding bias and validity. At the same time, the use of wargames for analytical purposes is increasing—with social scientists turning to the method as a tool for conducting behavioral research. In this presentation, I examine the use of wargames in the academy—focusing on the potential of experimental wargaming for social science research and efforts to address the methodological challenges associated with the method. In the process, I reflect on the lessons learned from the Carnegie-funded Project on Nuclear Gaming and on future applications of experimental wargames to address frontier national and international security challenges.

    Dr. Andrew Reddie is a Senior Engineer at Sandia National Laboratories and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley where he works on projects related to wargaming, arms control, nuclear deterrence, and cybersecurity. Andrew is currently a Bridging the Gap New Era Fellow, Hans J. Morgenthau Fellow, and a Krulak Center Non-Resident Fellow at Marine Corps University.
