Corey Hinderstein, vice president of international fuel cycle strategies at the Nuclear Threat Initiative, has been confirmed by the Senate to be deputy administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) defense nuclear nonproliferation office.
“In her new role at NNSA, she will help keep our nation—and our world—safe from nuclear threats by strengthening international partnerships and advancing next-generation ideas and technologies,” Department of Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said of Hinderstein’s confirmation.
Hinderstein previously worked at the DNN office as senior coordinator for nuclear security and nonproliferation policy affairs from February 2015 to November 2017.
She helped DOE prepare for the Nuclear Security Summit in 2016 and supported the department’s nuclear security work including efforts to tackle illicit trade and international weapons development.
Her career also includes time as deputy director at the Institute for Science and International Security and president at the Institute of Nuclear Materials Management.
