Harold A. Feiveson - bio  

Harold A. Feiveson is Senior Research Policy Scientist at Princeton University's Center for Energy and Environmental Studies.  Dr. Feiveson's principal research interests are in the fields of nuclear weapons and nuclear energy policy.  He is a co-principal investigator of Princeton's Research Program on Nuclear Policy Alternatives.  His recent work has focused on the ways in which the nuclear arsenals of the U.S. and the former Soviet Union can be dismantled and "de-alerted," on the strengthening of the nuclear non-proliferation regime (including a universal ban on the production of weapons-useable material and on nuclear weapons testing), and on the strengthening of the separation between nuclear weapons and civilian nuclear energy activities.  He is the editor of The Nuclear Turning Point:  A Blueprint for Deep Cuts and De-alerting of Nuclear Weapons and author of Overview and Verification Chapters, Brookings Institution, 1999.  Dr. Feiveson has an M.S. degree in Theoretical Physics from the University of California Los Angeles, 1959, and a Ph.D. in Public Affairs from Princeton University, 1972.
