Friends and Colleagues,
As the 2022-23 academic year nears an end, the Belfer Center community is reflecting on our efforts to develop ideas on policy solutions to some of the world’s toughest problems at the intersection of science and international affairs, and we’re looking to the future as we prepare for our leadership transition. In July, we will welcome a new Director, Meghan O’Sullivan, to whom I will hand the reins of the Center.
It has been an honor to lead the Center for the past six years alongside the highly talented faculty, staff, students, and others who make up the Belfer Center family. I plan to devote my time to teaching and running a project that will develop US security strategy for key areas of emerging technology.
In this newsletter, read about our recent guest, South Korean President Yoon, whose historic visit to Harvard was co-planned by our Korea Project. Learn how Center experts assess the war in Ukraine and Putin’s nuclear threats, what our research shows about the future of the energy transition and the significance of climate change governance, and how to navigate deepfakes and make technology, such as AI, work for and not against the public good. Also watch a Q&A with Meghan O’Sullivan and hear her thoughts about the Belfer Center’s impact. There’s much more. Click here to see the full newsletter.
