Evan Levine, Chief Scientist
Office of Risk Management and Analysis, NPPD
Dr. Evan Levine is Chief Scientist for the National Protection and Programs Directorate’s (NPPD) Office of Risk Management and Analysis, which leads the Department’s efforts to build an integrated approach for managing risk to support the entire homeland security enterprise.
Dr. Levine is currently stationed in New York City working directly with the New York Police Department’s (NYPD) Counterterrorism Bureau, where he helps the NYPD analyze security data to inform decision-making by NYPD leadership and officers in the field.
As a member of the Risk Assessment Study Group for the first-ever Quadrennial Homeland Security Review, Dr. Levine led the technical design of the Homeland Security National Risk Assessment methodology, which provides DHS leadership with quantitative risk information to inform decisions about planning and resource allocation across the Department.
NPPD works to reduce risks to the Nation through five mission areas: protect the Nation’s citizens and visitors against dangerous people and goods, protect the Nation’s physical infrastructure, protect and strengthen the Nation’s cyber and communications infrastructure, strengthen the Department’s risk management platform, and strengthen partnerships and foster collaboration and interoperability.
