Home Institution: Carleton College
Major: English
CNS Project: East Asia Nonproliferation Program 

“If you are a complete newcomer, CNS provides the opportunity for an immersive sampling of the nonproliferation field. You become acquainted with both the policy and technical dimensions of the work in the industry, taught by experts and scholars in very accessible and engaging ways. Those with a more substantial international relations or even nonproliferation background will also find the experience at CNS very rewarding, as the research being done here is innovative and specialized — often with a careful eye on contemporary global affairs and critical developments in the proliferation arena — and even as interns we are invited to wholly take part in understanding, unpacking, and solving the diverse challenges that occupy the field.”
