NTI Launches Science and Technology Advisory Group

Save to My Resources

Today, the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) launched a new, prestigious
Science and Technology Advisory Group, holding its first meeting in Washington,
D.C. The Advisory Group includes members
from academia and the public and private sectors who will guide NTI’s efforts
to address the challenges and opportunities presented by new and emerging
technologies to reduce the risks of weapons of mass destruction.

“Science and technology are moving faster than government policy,”
said Ernest J. Moniz, Co-Chair and CEO of NTI. “Governments have yet to fully
embrace the opportunities presented by emerging technologies, while at the same
time managing the new risks. We look forward to acting on the insights of this
outstanding group to guide our programs into the future.”

With the guidance of the Science and Technology Advisory Group,
NTI looks to demonstrate how new and emerging technologies can help reduce the
risks posed by weapons of mass destruction, while at the same time avoiding the
potential pitfalls.

Members of the Science and Technology Advisory Group include:

  • John Holdren, Teresa and John Heinz Professor of Environmental
    Policy, Harvard Kennedy School, former Director of the White House Office of
    Science and Technology Policy, and Chair of the Science and Technology Advisory Group
  • Gideon Frank, NTI Board Member and Former
    Director, Israel Atomic Energy Commission
  • James Gosler, Senior Fellow, Applied Physics Laboratory, Johns Hopkins University
  • Jill Hruby, Sam Nunn Distinguished Fellow, Nuclear
    Threat Initiative
  • Dimitri Kusnezov, Deputy
    Under Secretary for Artificial Intelligence and Technology at the U.S.
    Department of Energy
  • Jason Matheny, Director, Center for Security and
    Emerging Technology, Georgetown University
  • Ray Rothrock, NTI Board Member and Chairman and
    CEO, RedSeal
  • Ellen Williams, Distinguished University Professor,
    University of Maryland
  • Maria Zuber, Vice President for Research and E. A.
    Griswold Professor of Geophysics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Page Stoutland, Ph.D., NTI’s Vice President for Scientific and
Technical Affairs, will support the work of the Science and Technology Advisory
Group. At NTI, Stoutland has led the development of NTI’s Nuclear Security
Index. Currently he has responsibility for NTI’s scientific and technical
projects to reduce risks around the world, including addressing cyber threats
to nuclear systems and the use of publically available data to support nuclear
nonproliferation.
