Publishing Manager, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs

Andrew is the publishing manager at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, a policy-focused think tank at Harvard Kennedy School. He specializes in producing academic works for print and digital publication, designing original data visualizations, and managing the Center’s brand. Andrew is active in the field of nuclear weapons education, serving as teaching assistant for various graduate classes in Harvard’s nuclear deterrence certificate program and giving occasional lectures on technology, history, and cultural issues. He has been published on nuclear issues in The Boston Globe and Arms Control Today, and has spoken on the BBC World Service.

Andrew earned his bachelor’s from Boston University in 2010 and his master’s in international relations from Harvard Extension School in 2018, where he focused on nuclear weapons policy and nonproliferation issues. His thesis explored a unique dimension of Mao Zedong’s ideology and the long-lasting normative influence those beliefs had on China’s future nuclear policy choices.

I am most excited to work on projects that… have the potential to challenge our fundamental assumptions about security and peace.

I am looking for partners that can help me… bring the post-Cold War generations “up to speed” about the nuclear threat, and mobilizing them for change.

A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… when our Center developed a special guide to the Iran Deal in 2015 and successfully brought it to policymakers in the US, Iran, and Israel. Clarity in combined writing and visualization is a huge value-add!

Innovations in my field that I am most excited to work on… include the ability to rapidly create quality print, graphic, and even video products in response to quickly moving news. Each story is a chance to educate and inspire.
