Daniel Jackson, a nonproliferation policy specialist at PNNL, was selected by the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) as a 2020 Shawn Brimley Next Generation National Security Fellow. This year, 24 emerging leaders were chosen from over 240 applicants.
The year-long professional development fellowship works to bring together individuals dedicated to preserving and strengthening national security. These young professionals will learn best practices and lessons in leadership, while developing a deeper understanding of U.S. national security.
“The Brimley Next Generation Fellowship is a great opportunity to network with peers in the national security community while engaging with senior leaders,” said Jackson. “The fellowship will provide an opportunity to develop my leadership skills while gaining perspective on the leadership issues and challenges facing the broader national security community.”
At PNNL, Jackson partners with foreign governments to strengthen their ability to combat the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. He also serves as a team lead for the National Nuclear Security Administration Graduate Fellowship Program, a project manager for international nonproliferation and counterproliferation programs, and works as a trainer for biological security, chemical security, and counter proliferation finance workshops.
“This opportunity recognizes Daniel's dedicated efforts to help others grow as future leaders in national security,” said Melanie Godinez, a PNNL program manager. “Daniel is a good fit for this fellowship because he brings unique experience as both a security practitioner and a mentor of others in the field. This is a great opportunity for him to expand his leadership beyond our team and make a greater impact within the broader community.”
