Dr. Mona Dreicer is the Deputy Director of the Center for Global Security Research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Since joining LLNL in 2003, she has focused on the Laboratory's nonproliferation programs, including international material protection and threat reduction, verification and safeguards technology, nonproliferation regimes and policy analysis, and international engagement. Prior to joining LLNL, Dreicer served as Director of the Office of Nuclear Affairs at the U.S. Department of State, where she was involved in assessing compliance with nuclear arms control treaties and worked to ensure effective verification of nonproliferation agreements and U.S.-Russia nuclear materials programs. Over the past 30 years, Dreicer has worked in nuclear-related areas of international security, dose reconstruction, consequence management, environmental risk assessment and protection, and nuclear reactor safety for the U.S. government (Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, State Department), three U.S. national laboratories, (Los Alamos National Laboratory, LLNL, and the Environmental Measurements Laboratory), the International Atomic Energy Agency's Department of Nuclear Safety, and a French nonprofit research organization (Centre d'etude sur l'Evaluation de la Protection dans le domaine Nucleaire, or CEPN). Dreicer holds a Doctorate en Energetique from l'Ecole Nationale Superiere des Mines de Paris (School of Mines of Paris), Centre d'Energetique (Center of Energy Studies), Paris, France.
