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.
Liviu Horovitz is a research fellow in the Belfer Center's International Security Program and a Ph.D. candidate in international relations at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH). His research focuses on the role of military preponderance within the current international system.
Prior to his doctoral studies, Liviu worked on nuclear policy questions for the Center for Security Studies in Zurich, the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization in Vienna, and the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in Monterey. He earned a B.A. in IR from the Dresden University of Technology and an M.A. from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, where he was a Fulbright fellow.Last Updated: Jan 6, 2017, 12:57pm
