Christopher Lawrence is a fellow with the Belfer Center's International Security Program and Project on Managing the Atom. He earned his Ph.D. in nuclear science and engineering at the University of Michigan, where he developed novel neutron spectroscopy techniques to characterize nuclear warheads for treaty verification. After leaving Michigan, Christopher studied the history of North Korea's nuclear program as a Stanton Nuclear Security Fellow at Stanford's Center for International Security and Cooperation. He then became a fellow in Harvard's Program on Science, Technology, and Society, where he studied the role of commercial satellite imagery in the framing of public narratives about weapons of mass destruction.  A major focus of his work at the Belfer Center is U.S. engagement with North Korea.
