WASHINGTON—Li Bin, a physicist and expert on nuclear arms control and disarmament, joined the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace as a senior associate working jointly in the Nuclear Policy Program and the Asia Program. Li’s work focuses on China’s nuclear and arms control policy and U.S.-China nuclear relations.

 
Prior to joining the Carnegie Endowment, Li was a professor of international relations at Tsinghua University, where he was the founding director of the Arms Control Program at the Institute of International Studies. He previously directed the arms control division at the Institute of Applied Physics and Computational Mathematics, where he also served as executive director of the Program for Science and National Security Studies.
 
Making the announcement, George Perkovich, vice president for studies and director of the Nuclear Policy Program, said:
 
“We are thrilled that Bin is joining the Nuclear Policy Program team, bringing with him years of experience as a nuclear expert. The growing importance of China on a range of issues, including Sino-American nuclear relations, makes Bin’s appointment all the more timely and critical. He has worked in premier institutions in China and we believe that Carnegie’s worldwide nuclear policy team offers a perfect place to continue his important research, both in the United States and in Beijing.”
 
Li added:
 
“I am excited about the opportunity to work with Carnegie’s Asia and Nuclear Policy Programs, both of which are well known and respected in their fields. This is an important moment for arms control policy and U.S.-China nuclear relations. At a time when there are both challenges and opportunities in maintaining strategic stability, there is no better team to be part of than Carnegie’s, whose Nuclear Policy Program is unparalleled in its breadth of expertise and knowledge.”
 
Carnegie’s Nuclear Policy Program is an internationally acclaimed source of expertise and policy thinking on nuclear industry, nonproliferation, security, and disarmament. With thirteen experts covering nuclear policy issues in the United States, Russia, China, Europe, Northeast Asia, South Asia, and the Middle East, it is a preeminent program in its field.
