Cambridge, MA – Former Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter will join the Harvard Kennedy School as the Belfer Professor of Technology and Global Affairs and Director of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. As Secretary of Defense, Carter, a physicist, became known for pushing the Pentagon to “think outside its five-sided box” in order to transform the way the military fought adversaries and strengthened alliances, managed its budget and talent, developed its technology, and more. He will now lead the Belfer Center’s programs and will focus his scholarship on the role of innovation and technology in addressing challenges at home and around the world.
Arnold Bogis’ research interests include radiological and nuclear terrorism as well as homeland security strategy, preparedness and response, intelligence and risk analysis. Prior to joining BCSIA, he was a policy analyst for a Department of Homeland Security grant at George Washington University’s Homeland Security Policy Institute that developed policy and educational tools related to emergency medical service response to terrorism and natural disasters.
Bogis previously held the position of Research Associate and Assistant to the Director at the Institute for Communitarian Policy Studies, focusing on issues of nuclear terrorism, homeland security, and post-conflict reconstruction. In an earlier period at BCSIA, he worked as a research associate studying nuclear, biological, and other terrorism-related topics.
