PROFESSIONAL CONSULTANTS

James Bradbury, Ph. D.
Robert Gough, Ph.D.
Bernard Udis, Ph. D.
Alan Zelicoff, M.D.


James Bradbury, Ph. D.

Dr. Bradbury joined UNM as an adjunct professor working in programs to promote nuclear non-proliferation incentives and teaching a course on urgent global issues and new techniques for achieving consensus and action on such issues.

In 1974, he joined the Los Alamos National Laboratories (LANL) where he assumed responsibility for the applied research in muon physics, radiation effects, and pion cancer radiotherapy.

In 1993, after his retirement as Deputy Director of Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility at LANL, he became a Lab guest scientist participating in numerous projects to help redirect Russian weapons scientists into peaceful research with commercial potential. In addition, he helps manage several non-profit organizations aimed at promoting global peace, analyzing and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, investigating pipeline safety issues, and developing policies for ameliorating trans-border environmental and safety issues.

He has a Ph.D. in Physics from Stanford University . He received his B.A. in Physics from Pomona College .

Robert Gough, Ph. D.

Dr. Bob Gough has retired three times, but cannot seem to make it stick. Most recently, he retired from the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) in Vienna, Austria, where, as the senior American in the On-Site Inspection Division, he planned and directed several large-scale practice inspections in places like Kazakhstan and Slovakia. The success of those realistic field activities drew largely on his previous systems engineering work, at Sandia National Laboratories, to develop technology and procedures for verifying other countries’ compliance with nuclear, chemical, and missile arms control treaties.

While at Sandia, he was asked to serve as the Energy Department representative on U.S. delegations to the United Nations General Assembly in New York and to the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva, Switzerland, where he helped negotiate the Chemical Weapons Convention, and the CTBT, as well as leading discussions on a possible radiological weapons ban.

Before retiring from Sandia, he applied those experiences to Sandia’s strategic planning efforts, as well as to so-called “backstopping” activities of both the State and Energy Departments for various diplomatic initiatives. Arms control verification activities - which required integration of such disparate functions as technology, diplomacy, national security, intelligence, analysis, and policy - were a natural follow-on to Bob’s earlier military service.

Air Force assignments included directing the specialists who analyzed data from operational tests of all new Air Force electronic equipment; performing proprietary assessments for the Secretary of Defense of broad military investment strategies for long-term competitions with adversaries; strategic weapon system development; civic action duties during combat operations in Southeast Asia; and teaching at the US Air Force Academy.

During two tours on the faculty at USAFA, Dr. Gough designed and taught courses in decision theory, statistics, operations research, systems theory, and economics, as well as directed the largest academic major chosen by cadets, Management. Bob has also taught both graduate and undergraduate courses as an adjunct professor at numerous universities across the U.S., including the University of New Mexico.

Although retired from full-time employment, Bob has consultancies with the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) in Vienna, Austria; Sandia National Laboratories; and the Office for Policy, Security and Technology at the University of New Mexico. For the latter, he helped formulate and conduct research on strategic defense technology management, arranged discussions with numerous former senior government officials, and tailored materials for both the final report and briefings. He continues to serve on several community service boards, including that of the Albuquerque Committee on Foreign Relations, which he also served as Executive Director before moving to Vienna.

His academic education includes a BS in Chemical Engineering from Lehigh University , an MBA from the University of Chicago , and an MS in Engineering-Economic Systems and a PhD from Stanford University , where his research was awarded the top prize in the Decision Sciences Institute's national dissertation competition. Other professional service and honors have included national and regional boards of DSI, the Military Operations Research Society, and several academic honor societies.

Bernard Udis, Ph.D.

Dr. Udis is professor emeritus of economics at the University of Colorado (Boulder) and presently is serving as professional consultant at the CSTP. His specialty is defense economics. He has published books and articles on industrial policy, defense procurement, arms control, international collaborative ventures in aerospace, offsets in defense trade, and military recruitment.

Most recently, he served as professional consultant for the CSTP study "Strategic Technology investment for Defense: Enhancing contributions from Foreign Sources" conducted for the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. He has also authored proprietary studies such as: "Issues Surrounding the Potential Design and Production of an Indigenous Multirole Helicopter by the Republic of Korea" for the Korea Development Institute: "Japan's Potential Role in a Military-Technical Revolution" (with Arthur J. Alexander) for the Office fo the Secretary of Defense (Net Assessment); and "The Costs of NATO Expansion: A Comparative Analysis" for the Bonn International Center for Conversion.

In addition to a long career at Colorado, he taught at Princeton, Tennessee, Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon, and New Mexico. During AY 1982-83, he served as Distinguished Visiting Professor of Economics at the U.S. Air Force Academy. He was a NATO research fellow between 1992-94, and a William C. Foster fellow at the U.S. Arms Control & Disarmament Agency in 1997. Dr Udis made several presentations in 2005 at the U.S. Navel Postgraduate School.

Dr. Udis coauthored two papers that appeared in the INTERNATIONAL LIBRARY OF CRITICAL WRITINGS IN ECONOMICS - published originally in the AMERICAN ECONOMIC REVIEW (1983) and, again, in DEFENSE ECONOMICS (1991) and in the U.K. (2002). Recently. he coauthored paper on arms export control issues, which was published in the NONPROLIFERATION REVIEW in 2001 and has been republished in a British volume ARMS TRADE, SECURITY AND CONFLICT in 2003.

Dr. Udis holds a Ph. D. from Princeton University, an MA from the University of Pennsylvania, and a BA from the Pennsylvania State University.

Alan Zelicoff, M.D.

Dr. Zelicoff is a medical doctor with a background in physics. He spent over 10 years in private practice before joining Sandia National Laboratories where he became deeply involved in arms control and other national security issues. He was a negotiator for the U.S. government in the chemical and biological areas and was involved with many national studies in these areas.

Dr. Zelicoff spent over a decade as a project leader for interactions between the U.S. and the Former Soviet Union. During this period, he helped establish internet communications between American and Russian Institutes and led several joint research projects. He speaks Russian well and has established a wide array of contacts within the U.S. and Russian technical communities.

Dr. Zelicoff has a M.D. from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He has an A.B. in Physics from Princeton University.
