Alden “Eli” Horton


I graduated from Middlebury College in May 2022 and am currently a Graduate Research Assistant at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) where I support nonproliferation education programs and will be contributing to CNS strategic export controls research in the spring of 2023.

Areas of interest

My areas of interest in nuclear nonproliferation include nonproliferation policy and diplomacy, strategic arms control, and strategic export controls.

Project description

My project explores the current strategic arms control impasse between the U.S. and Russia. I am examining previous U.S.-Russia arms control frameworks within the context of the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine to see how they can offer approaches to the current U.S.-Russia arms control impasse.
