Leslie G. Fishbone has spent the last twenty-eight years working in the area of nuclear material safeguards. During 1989-1993 he worked in the Department of Safeguards of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna, Austria. Since returning, he resumed his earlier position at Brookhaven National Laboratory, where he had been since 1977. He now serves in the MPC&A Cooperative Programs Division and the Nonproliferation and Safeguards Division of the Brookhaven Nonproliferation and National Security Department. His current responsibilities are for tasks relating to upgrading and sustaining nuclear material protection, control and accounting in Russia, where he has traveled many times during the last fourteen years, and for tasks relating to the international verification work of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Dr. Fishbone earned a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from the California Institute of Technology in 1968. He received a Doctor of Philosophy degree in 1972 from the University of Maryland, with a dissertation on black-hole relativistic astrophysics. Thereafter he went to the Soviet Union as a participant in the research exchanges between the National Academy of Sciences and the Academy of Sciences of the U.S.S.R.; he was attached to the Landau Institute of Theoretical Physics. From 1974-1977 he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Utah.
