Ms. Corey Hinderstein traveled to College Station to meet with TEES Nuclear Security Science and Policy (NSSPI) staff and students and to address the Texas A&M University Student Chapter of the Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM). Hinderstein is the Senior Coordinator for the Nuclear Security Summit and Nonproliferation Policy Affairs at the Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation in the US Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration.
Hinderstein met with NSSPI graduate students at an informal roundtable, where she learned more about the research students are currently doing in nuclear security and nonproliferation at Texas A&M. She gave a presentation to the Texas A&M INMM student chapter in which she discussed the interrelationship of technical and policy interests for decision making in Washington, D.C. She also had the opportunity to interact with students at the event.
During her time at Texas A&M, Hinderstein also visited the Nuclear Science Center, the NSSPI Radiation Detection and Safeguards Laboratory, the NSSPI Nuclear Forensics Laboratory, and the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum. In addition to NSSPI faculty and staff, she also met with Dr. Arnold Vedlitz, executive associate dean and Bob Bullock Chair at the Bush School of Government and Public Policy and director of the Institute for Science, Technology, and Public Policy.
Hinderstein’s areas of specialization include minimizing uses of highly enriched uranium, the management and verification of nuclear fuel cycle activities internationally, improving nuclear security, and arms control and nonproliferation verification. Hinderstein is the current vice president for INMM and was formerly vice president for material security and minimization at the Nuclear Threat Initiative, working on global nuclear nonproliferation and security.
