ROBIN L. DILLON-MERRILL is an associate professor at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University. Her research specializes in risk and decision analysis. In particular, Dr. Dillon-Merrill's research examines critical decisions that people have made following near-miss events in situations with severe outcomes, such as hurricane evacuation, and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) mission management. She also uses programmatic risk analysis to improve project and operational management in complex, resource-constrained environments. Her past research in risk has included supporting the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) selection of a new tritium supply facility and aiding NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in decision making for past Mars missions. She is currently serving on the National Research Council (NRC) Committee on New Orleans Regional Hurricane Protection Projects, and has previously served on the NRC Committee on Assessing the Results of External Independent Reviews for U.S. Department of Energy Projects as well as the Committee on Opportunities for Accelerating Characterization and Treatment of Waste at DOE Nuclear Weapons Sites. Dr. Dillon-Merrill received her Ph.D. in engineering risk analysis from Stanford University, and an M.S. and B.S. from the University of Virginia.


ROGER L. HAGENGRUBER is the director of the Office for Policy, Security and Technology (OPS&T) and the Institute for Public Policy (IPP) and a research professor (political science and physics) at the University of New Mexico. He was formerly a senior vice president at Sandia National Laboratories and directed Sandia’s primary mission in nuclear weapons during the transition following the end of the Cold War. He spent much of his 30-year career at Sandia in arms control and nonproliferation activities including several tours in Geneva as a negotiator. In recent years, he has focused on the nuclear transition in the former Soviet Union and on security issues associated with counterterrorism and has chaired or served on numerous panels that have addressed these issues. His work at the University of New Mexico includes directing the IPP work in public surveys including sampling of U.S. and European views on a wide range of security issues. The OPS&T creates multidisciplinary teams from laboratories and
