Through our partnership with PNM, CIR is proud to bring back one of New Mexico’s greatest speakers, Dr. Sig Hecker. Dr. Hecker is an internationally recognized expert in plutonium science, global threat reduction and nuclear security. As discussed recently on 60 Minutes, Dr. Hecker has made some extraordinary visits to North Korea to assess its plutonium programs and advances in nuclear weapons – a development that now directly threatens the United States.
Dr. Hecker is a professor in the Department of Management Science and Engineering and a senior fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI). He was co-director of Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC) from 2007-2012. From 1986 to 1997, Dr. Hecker served as the fifth Director of the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Dr. Hecker is also compiling and editing a book with two of his Russian colleagues on the history of Russian-U.S. laboratory-to-laboratory cooperation since 1992.
