Bio: Eva C. Uribe is a senior member of the technical staff at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, CA. As a systems research analyst, Eva works with interdisciplinary teams to conduct systematic, data driven analyses to inform researchers and policymakers in the national security arena. Eva was a 2016-2017 Stanton Nuclear Security postdoctoral fellow at the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University, where she investigated fissile material production pathways in the thorium fuel cycle. Eva received a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley in 2016. For her dissertation research, she conducted structural analyses of organically-modified porous silica surfaces for the extraction of aqueous actinides using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. In 2011 Eva received a B.S. from Yale University with a double major in chemistry and political science. Her interests in nuclear science, technology, and policy began during her time as a Next Generation Safeguards Initiative intern with the Nonproliferation Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory in 2008 and 2009.
