Edward Jenner

Postdoctoral Fellow
Technology and International Security

Edward Jenner is working as a program analyst in support of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). Prior to this, Edward was a Postdoctoral Fellow in Technology and International Security at the UC Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC) in Washington, D.C. At this fellowship, Edward focused on nuclear issues and their impact on great power competition. Edward was also a Stanton Nuclear Security Fellow at Texas A&M, where he collaborated with Matthew Fuhrmann and Craig Marianno on research studying supply-side nuclear proliferation. He also worked as a senior nuclear reactor operator and assistant reactor supervisor at the University of California, Irvine. Edward received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from UC Irvine. Edward’s primary research interest is nuclear energy and related nuclear issues. He seeks to understand how nuclear energy may abate climate change, and how effects of climate change and great power competition may impact nuclear proliferation through nuclear energy. He is also interested in related issues such as small modular reactors, floating nuclear power plants, nuclear fuel reprocessing, and climate change disinformation.
