Prior to joining Stimson, White served as senior advisor for Asian and Pacific
Security Affairs in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, a position he held

Foreign Relations. While at the Pentagon he covered a wide range of defense

Management Sciences, the International Islamic University in Islamabad,
Pakistan’s National Defence University, and the Institute for Defence and

Michael Krepon, co-founder of Stimson and director of Stimson’s South Asia
program, expressed gratitude about Joshua’s arrival. “He will bring
greater strength to Stimson’s work on nuclear risk reduction and deterrence
stability, while expanding our coverage to the conventional military balance in
South Asia and the impact of Islamic political movements on regional
security. Josh’s fieldwork in the region and language skills are huge
