Mark Hibbs is a senior associate in Carnegie’s Nuclear Policy Program, based in Berlin. Before joining Carnegie, for over twenty years he was an editor and correspondent for nuclear energy publications including Nucleonics Week and Nuclear Fuel, published by the Platts division of the McGraw-Hill Companies.
Hibbs started at McGraw-Hill as the European editor, then became editor for the Asia-Pacific, and finally, in addition to his Asia-Pacific responsibilities, senior correspondent.
From the late 1980s until the mid-1990s, he covered nuclear developments in the Soviet bloc, including research on the USSR’s nuclear-fuel-cycle facilities and its nuclear-materials inventories. Since the mid-1990s, his work has focused emerging nuclear programs in Asia, including China and India.
Throughout the last two decades, many of the over 3,000 articles he wrote investigated nuclear-proliferation-related developments in Argentina, Brazil, China, India, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Japan, Libya, North and South Korea, Pakistan, South Africa, Syria, and Taiwan.
Since 2003, he has made many detailed findings about clandestine procurement in Europe related to gas centrifuge uranium-enrichment programs in Iran, Libya, North Korea, and Pakistan.
