Lisa Langdon Koch is Assistant Professor of Government at Claremont McKenna College. She specializes in international relations, focusing on international security, nuclear proliferation, and foreign policy.

Professor Koch's article "Frustration and Delay: The Secondary Effects of Supply-Side Proliferation Controls" is forthcoming in Security Studies. With Matthew S. Wells, she is currently conducting a Carnegie Corporation-funded study of the mechanisms that support the "nuclear taboo" - the shared belief that it is wrong to use nuclear weapons. Koch's current book project concerns the decisions leaders make that change the course of their nuclear weapons programs. For more information, visit https://llkoch.weebly.com.
