Sensor Integration Branch Chief, Information Technology Laboratory, U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center
Quincy G. Alexander is the Information Technology Laboratory’s (ITL) Sensor Integration Branch Chief at the Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), in Vicksburg, Mississippi. In this capacity, he leads a team of engineers and scientists that combine both hardware and software expertise to provide cutting-edge, customized sensor and electronic packages capable of collecting data and turning that data into useful information to provide solutions for military and civil projects. His research focus is the development and deployment of structural health monitoring tools and techniques used for evaluating the current condition and predicting the future condition of America’s aging infrastructure with an eye towards sustainability and resilience. As chair of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Committee on Diversity and Inclusion, Alexander played a pivotal role in the development of what is now Canon 8 of the Code of Ethics and provided leadership in shepherding it through the review and adoption process.
