Dr. Robert Schock is an Associate Senior Fellow at the Center for Global Security Research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. He is also co-chair of the Energy Permanent Monitoring Panel for the World Federation of Scientists and Senior Advisor and the former Director of Studies for the World Energy Council in London. He was a Coordinating Lead Author (Energy Sources) for the 4th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Schock worked for 34 years at LLNL, holding a number of positions including Associate Director in which he initiated or was responsible for programs in advanced energy technologies including magnetic fusion, hydrogen fuels, geothermal, in-situ coal gasification, oil shale retorting, environmental restoration and waste management, and energy policy analysis. He was a delegate to the U.S.–Russian bilateral negotiations on nuclear nonproliferation (1999-2000) and worked on verification of the Agreed Framework with North Korea (2001).

Schock has served on the editorial boards of five scientific journals and on national scientific panels for the U.S. National Research Council, the Department of Energy, and the National Science Foundation. He was a Senior Fulbright Fellow in Germany and a Visiting Fellow at the Australian National University. He is an author or coauthor of more than 150 scientific and technical papers. He holds a B.S. degree in geology from Colorado College, an M.S. degree in geochemistry from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and a Ph.D. in geophysics also from Rensselaer.
