Ernest J. Moniz, who was recently named

vision of a world without nuclear weapons.
“What I think is really critical, what NTI has done as a do
tank as opposed to a think tank, is advocating for and facilitating practical
steps that can be taken in the near and medium term to reducing nuclear
threats,” said Dr. Moniz, who begins as CEO
effective June 1st.
