ChrisWeimer, Assistant Professor
Lt Col Christopher W. Weimer is an Assistant Professor of Statistics in the Math and Statistics Department of the Graduate School of Engineering and Management, Air Force Institute of Technology. He leads research developing simulation models of opinion dynamics, seeking to make qualitative psychological and sociological theory more quantitative and predictive in nature. In this role, he teaches statistics courses to students seeking post-graduate degrees across all departments.
Lt Col Weimer received his commission from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 2006. He has served tours in the 711th Human Performance Wing, the Air Force Operational Test and Evaluation Center, the 609th Air Operations Center, and the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center. Prior to his current assignment, he was the Innovation and Analysis Branch Chief at the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas.
