Dr. Glenn Cross currently works for the US Government on WMD issues. Since the early 1990s, he has worked on biological weapons (BW) issues for several U.S. intelligence agencies. Beginning in the early 2000s, he has supervised analysis of WMD terrorism topics and most recently BW issues. His expertise focuses on state and non-state BW efforts. From September 2008 to October 2010, Dr. Cross was the Deputy National Intelligence Officer for WMD & Proliferation responsible for biological weapons issues on the Director of National Intelligence's National Intelligence Council. He also was a post-doctoral fellow at Georgetown University where he conducted an exhaustive study of the Rhodesian CBW program as an example of a CBW program that had slipped under the radar of most other nations. Dr. Cross is a frequent speaker at panels and workshops on biological weapons and has been quoted in books and periodicals on biological weapons. Dr. Cross received his A.B. from Columbia University in history and political science, an M.A. from King's College, London in War Studies, a second M.A. from George Mason University in international trade, and a Ph.D. in biodefense from George Mason University.
