Computer Society Chapter: Dr. David "Fuzzy" Wells, CMSP UCF SMST/IST Deputy Director

FPODr. David "Fuzzy" Wells is Deputy Director of the University of Central Florida's School of Modeling, Simulation, and Training (SMST). He is responsible for overseeing the daily operations of the Institute for Simulation & Training (IST) and assists the Director in the development and implementation of SMSTs strategy, mission, and vision. He provides technical and administrative support to a diverse transdisciplinary faculty and staff to facilitate and guide scholarly endeavors. He leads strategic partnership initiatives; promotes collaboration with SMST, UCF, and the broader simulation & training community; and serves as UCF's representative to Team Orlando.

Before assuming his current position, Dr. Wells was Director of U.S. Indo-Pacific Command's Cyber War Innovation Center (CWIC) where he built the first combatant command venue for cyber testing, training, and experimentation; managed the Command's cyber innovation & experimentation portfolio; and executed cyber range testing and training events for service, joint, and coalition partners. During his tenure, the CWIC won two industry awards (top 100 innovative learning organization and outstanding achievement in modeling & simulation) and Dr. Wells was twice recognized at the world's largest simulation and training conference for his contributions to cyber simulation and training.

A retired Air Force (AF) officer, his past assignments include: Chief Scientist for Research and Development at the Joint Warfare Analysis Center; Chief of Operations Assessment at AF Central Command's Combined Air & Space Operations Center; Chair of the Operations Research Working Group, Director of Modeling & Simulation (M&S) Education and Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the U.S. Air Force Academy; AF M&S lead for U.S. Joint Forces Command's Millennium Challenge experiment while at the AF Agency for M&S; and Prime Warrior Course Director and AF lead for the Prairie Warrior exercise while at the AF Wargaming Institute. He has served as exercise designer, senior controller, and assessor for battlestaff training exercises in Korea, Alaska, Hawaii, CONUS, Germany, and Norway.

Dr. Wells was the first AF officer to obtain a Ph.D. in Modeling, Virtual Environments, and Simulation from the Naval Postgraduate School. He also earned the first M.S. in Modeling & Simulation from the AF Institute of Technology. He is a Certified Modeling & Simulation Professional Charter Member and a National Modeling & Simulation Coalition Plankowner.
