I am an assistant professor in the Defense Analysis Department at the Naval Postgraduate School and a nonresident fellow in the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.



I study issues at the intersection of nuclear proliferation, emerging technology, and regional security. My most recent publication, "Dual-Use Distinguishability: How 3D-Printing Shapes the Security Dilemma for Nuclear Programs," explores the effect of technological change on future proliferation dynamics. This article appears in the Journal of Strategic Studies as part of a special issue about the impact of emerging technologies on strategic stability. You can learn more about my research, publications, and funding here:



My work has appeared in peer-review journals such as Security Studies, the Journal of Strategic Studies, and the Nonproliferation Review. I also write for general policy audiences in journals such as Foreign Affairs, the Washington Quarterly, and the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.



I run the Counter-Proliferation Studies program and teach courses on coercive strategy and proliferation for NPS students in the Defense Analysis Department.



I live and work in Monterey County, California. In the past, I was a fellow at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and then the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. I earned doctoral and bachelor degrees in political science from GWU and UCLA. You can reach me via email or on Twitter @TeeAndersVolpe.
