After nearly 30 years of federal service, Carl Stoiber now spends his time as a consultant in international nuclear law and policy, a freelance cartoonist, and as a mountaineer. A native Boulderite, Stoiber holds BA and JD degrees from CU, where he was student association president. He was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University and received the LL.M. from London University. Stoiber's last federal position was as International Programs Director at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, where he played a central role in negotiating a far-reaching international convention on nuclear safety. Between 1982 and 1993, he directed three offices in the Department of State dealing with nuclear non-proliferation, helping establish the UN commission to dismantle and inspect Iraq's weapons of mass destruction programs. During the past year, he has consulted for the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, drafting key sections of a study on mechanisms to reduce the risks of nuclear conflict between the U.S. and Russia. Stoiber lectures frequently on nuclear law at the International Atomic Energy Agency and chairs an expert group drafting an IAEA Handbook on Nuclear Legislation. Most recently, the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency in Paris selected him as a founding faculty member of the International School of Nuclear Law at the University of Montpellier. An amateur cartoonist since grade school, Stoiber has gone professional, illustrating publications for the National Academy of Sciences. A regular contributor to the NAS quarterly Issues in Science and Technology, he is illustrating a legal casebook on Science and the Law.
