While majoring in Political Science, Lauryn studied nuclear nonproliferation and wrote an honors thesis on the impact of the US-India Civil Nuclear Agreement through the Center for International Security and Cooperation.
"My current job is about as directly related to my studies in the political science department and at CISAC as possible. At Stanford, I studied nuclear nonproliferation with Scott Sagan and eventually wrote an honors thesis on the impact of the US-India Civil Nuclear Agreement. As a member of Carnegie's Nuclear Policy Program, I work on these issues and more every single day and often draw on what I learned as an undergraduate."
"As a Junior Fellow in the Nuclear Policy Program, I provide research assistance for a team of world-renowned scholars who focus on nuclear issues in various regions of the world, including South and East Asia, Europe and Latin America. My work at Carnegie has even provided me the opportunity to travel to interact with government and non-government nuclear experts."
