Page Stoutland, consultant for Scientific and Technical Affairs, joined the Nuclear Threat Initiative in 2010. He previously served as a vice president, responsible for NTI’s scientific and technically related projects designed to strengthen nuclear security and reduce risks around the world. Current themes include understanding the risks and benefits of emerging technologies for nuclear security, working to strengthen cybersecurity for nuclear weapons systems and at nuclear facilities, and the use of publicly available information for detection of illicit nuclear activities.

Prior to joining NTI, Stoutland spent the previous ten years at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) where he held a number of senior positions, including the director of strategy, program director for domestic security and division leader for radiological & nuclear countermeasures.
