Hannah Harris


From the mountains of Pennsylvania, I’m a scientist and scholar with a background in astrophysics, studying nuclear issues at MIIS. I’ve worked in Asia, Europe, and America in labs and observatories studying black holes and communicating science to everyone from kindergartners to parliamentarians.

Areas of interest

I’m broadly interested in the intersection of science and security focusing on the “six-party talks” countries: ROK, DPRK, Russia, China, Japan, and USA.

Project description

Building on my experience working with astronomers from around the world, I’m exploring the utility of peaceful cooperation between young scientists from nuclear allied and adversary states to transform conflict in regions such as East Asia by fostering the next generation of scientist-diplomats.
