MISSION

The Laboratory for Nuclear Security and Policy (LNSP) is working to resolve the stability, safety, and security challenges that arise from nuclear technology. We are interested in the problems of nuclear-weapons proliferation, nuclear deterrence theory and stability, verification systems to enable nuclear disarmament, and the safe stewardship of nuclear power and the fuel cycle. The Laboratory acts as a nexus for engineers, physicists, historians, political and policy scholars to join forces in collaborative research. The Laboratory also supports students pursuing graduate studies in Nuclear Science and Engineering with research interests related to the Laboratory’s mission.
