Andrew Newman

Andrew Newman is Senior Director for Nuclear Fuel Cycle Activities at the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI). Prior to joining NTI, Newman worked at Harvard University’s Project on Managing the Atom, the Australian Embassy’s Nuclear Science and Technology Office in Washington, DC, the Russian-American Nuclear Security Advisory Council (now the Partnership for Global Security) in Washington, DC, and the Office of the Emergency Services Commissioner, Department of Justice, Victoria, Australia. Newman is an adjunct research associate at Monash University in Australia, where he holds a doctorate in political science and is the lead author of Decision-making and Radioactive Waste Disposal (Routledge, 2016). Andrew’s first exposure to horror movies, courtesy of an older neighbor who screened many of the great late ’70s/early ’80s shockers (Halloween, Phantasm, Scanners, An American Werewolf in London) shortly after they were released on VHS, led to a lasting obsession with the genre.
