Dr. Feiveson's principal research interests are in the fields of nuclear weapons and nuclear energy policy. He is a co-principal investigator of Princeton's research Program on Science and Global Security. His recent work has focused on the ways in which the nuclear arsenals of the U.S. and the former Soviet Union can be dismantled and "de-alerted", the strengthening of the nuclear non-proliferation regime (including a universal ban on the production of weapons-useable material and on nuclear weapons testing), and the strengthening of the separation between nuclear weapons and civilian nuclear energy activities.
Feiveson received an M.S. in Theoretical Physics from the University of California Los Angeles in1959; and a Ph.D. in Public Affairs from Princeton University in 1972
