Sam Nunn Security Program

I was selected as the 2006/2007 postdoctoral fellow of the Sam Nunn Security Program at Georgia Tech. This program "seeks to advance the role of scientific and technical advice on issues of international security through education, research, outreach activities, and participation in the policy advisement process." Together with other faculty and student fellows, I was engaged in research of the following issues:
  • Critical infrastructure protection (see paper on "Challenges in Critical Infrastructure Protection")
  • Nuclear proliferation and counter-proliferation (see paper on "Proactive Options for Countering North Korea’s Nuclear Capability")
  • Energy policy research (see paper on "The Nuclear Option for Long-Term Energy Independence")

Additional individual research was focused on other national security topics:
