David Albright, M.S. Physics (Indiana University and in Mathematics Wright State University), is one of the world's most respected and sought-out specialists on nuclear proliferation. He is the founder of the non-governmental Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS), its current president, and the author of several books on proliferation of atomic weapons, including Peddling Peril:  How the Secret Nuclear Trade Arms America’s Enemies.  (2010). Prior to founding ISIS, David worked as a Senior Staff Scientist at the Federation of American Scientists and as a member of the research staff of Princeton University’s Center for Energy and Environmental Studies.  He worked actively with the IAEA Action Team from 1992 until 1997, focusing on analyses of Iraqi documents and past procurement activities. In June 1996, he was the first non-governmental inspector of the Iraqi nuclear program. David Albright has testified many times on nuclear issues before the U.S. Congress, spoken to many groups, and trained many government officials in non-proliferation policy making. He has served as a consultant or contractor to the Environmental Policy Institute, the Congressional Research Service, the International Task Force on Prevention of Nuclear Terrorism, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the International Atomic Energy Agency. He has been cited often in the media (national and international), appeared frequently on television and radio, and been a guest on the Colbert Report. In 2006 David Albright received the prestigious Joseph A. Burton Forum Award from the American Physical Society, a professional society of American physicists. He was cited “For his tireless and productive efforts to slow the transfer of nuclear weapons technology. He brings a unique combination of deep understanding, objectivity, and effectiveness to this vexed area.”
