CNS Washington, DC Office


The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) Washington, DC, office works to connect cutting-edge research with the Washington policy-making community.

The office has a staff of around fourteen individuals spanning CNS program and thematic areas. The staff includes the CNS Middle East Program Director and the Editor of the Nonproliferation Review as well as a number of other research staff. CNS DC staff are heavily involved in implementing US government grants on important nonproliferation issues, including in relation to North Korea. The DC team includes expertise related to proliferation networks, maritime sanctions, satellite-imagery analysis, proliferation finance, and online and e-learning.

The office is currently headed by Dr. Ian Stewart. Dr. Stewart is a nuclear engineer by training and previously worked at King’s College London and the UK Ministry of Defence. At CNS DC, he is focused on increasing the connection between the research and policy-making community on nonproliferation issues. He is also working to expand the use of data (including so-called “big data” and machine learning) in policy making.

The office hosts interns in the summer months and occasionally during academic terms.
