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.
Lami Kim is a predoctoral fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, a Ph.D. candidate at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University, and a lecturer in the International Studies Program at Boston College. Her dissertation examines the effect of the multilateral nuclear export control regime on proliferation-risk involving civil nuclear assistance.
Prior to moving to Boston, she served as a Foreign Service Officer at the South Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs. She holds a Masters in International Affairs from The Fletcher School and a Master's Degree in Middle Eastern Studies from Harvard University.Last Updated: Jan 20, 2017, 1:42pm
