Anthony Kuhn
Associate Director of Education 



Kuhn has a background in electrical engineering and computer programming and has been a lecturer at ASU since 2017.  Kuhn also serves as Director of the ASU Engineering School’s Design Experiences team.  In this role he runs events and spaces built to help engineers practice their problem-solving and building skills, including our very successful hackathons!  Our goal has been to grow the hackathon and other student engagement experiences to include more DHS Centers of Excellence (COEs) and MSI universities, and Kuhn has the technology and capabilities to continue these efforts.

Kuhn is transitioning into the role this summer and will be replacing former Associate Director of Education, Dan McCarville who has led our education efforts since the inception of the center.  McCarville is continuing with his role at ASU as Professor of Practice for the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering (CISDE) and will continue to advise and participate with our education efforts as much as possible. We thank Dr. McCarville for this leadership over the last four years.  As he reflected on his past leadership and the future of the CAOE education efforts, McCarville offered some closing thoughts and a welcome to the new education leader, “I believe CAOE has taken very significant and innovative approaches that have led to fairly large numbers of students engaged in homeland security projects and learning activities. For us to take this to the next level, we need someone in this education leadership position who can provide the time needed, new skills, and fresh ideas.  Anthony is a great fit!”
