Sara Kutchesfahani joins senior staff at CITS
Dr. Sara Z. Kutchesfahani comes to the Center from the Nuclear Engineering and Nonproliferation Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), where she was the only social science research associate among a pool of 440 at the laboratory. At Los Alamos, her work focused on non-proliferation policy-related research projects, with an emphasis on international safeguards. From LANL, she also taught a graduate distance-learning education course, titled “Nuclear Safeguards & Security Policy,” at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, a premier science engineering research university.
Norinco student ambassador program
The close relationship between CITS and our partners in China creates unique opportunities for student enrichment. Every year, two undergraduates from the Security Leadership Program receive five-week internships with the Center's Chinese partners. They also attend CITS events in China, giving them the opportunity to meet and network with international businessmen and officials involved in security policy.
This is a reciprocal student exchange, with two students from Chinese universities joining counterparts at the University of Georgia for classes at CITS, the School of Public and International Affairs, and the Terry College of Business. The program is sponsored by Norinco.
