U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren named Sasha Baker as National Security Advisor in her Washington, DC office. 

"Sasha is an expert in national security policy who has spent years serving our nation at the highest levels. Sasha's extensive experience, particularly with the kind of innovative defense work and scientific research in Massachusetts that helps and protects our service members, will be of tremendous benefit to the Commonwealth,” said Warren.

Prior to her new position, Baker served as the Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter.

In this role, Baker led the Secretary's priority innovation initiatives, including opening the Department's first East Coast DIUx office in Cambridge, MA; and investments in the Strategic Capabilities Office, DARPA, and the Department's nationwide network of scientific labs and research centers. 

She was responsible for overseeing the Defense Digital Service, a group of digital engineers working on DoD's toughest technology challenges, and created the Defense Innovation Board, tasked to bring best practices from places like Cambridge and Silicon Valley into government. 

Baker also assisted with the Secretary's Force of the Future effort, which expanded family leave, created new broadening opportunities for military and civilian personnel, and introduced private-sector talent management to DoD in order to better recruit and retain a 21st-century all volunteer force. 

Until January 2017, Baker was the Deputy Chief of Staff to the Secretary of Defense, where she served as his senior advisor overseeing acquisition, technology, and logistics, and the development of the Department's $583 billion base budget and five-year investment strategy.

Baker is a graduate of Dartmouth College and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
