Lauren Chadwick is a Scoville Peace Fellow with the National Security team at the Center for Public Integrity. After graduating from Columbia University in May 2015, Chadwick joined the Washington D.C. team of NBC Nightly News as a desk assistant. During her time at NBC, she researched and booked interviews for political correspondents, reported for NBCNews.com on issues of foreign policy, field produced Washington events, and worked in the main N.Y. and D.C. control rooms to cover breaking news from terrorism overseas to the State of the Union address. As a student, Chadwick interned at the Center for Nonproliferation Studies in Monterey, Calif., where she contributed to the Nuclear Threat Initiative’s country profiles and worked on their illicit trafficking database. She also co-founded an interdisciplinary media project, the K=1 Project, focusing on nuclear energy and proliferation in coordination with CERN and Columbia University. As a part of the project, Chadwick traveled internationally, interviewed myriad experts, and produced three short films on nuclear power.
