AboutMy professional work has always been at the intersection of technology, public and national security policy, and economics. I have sought always to work on challenging problems of national or multinational importance. This has led me variously to work on issues of the restructuring of the automotive industry, evolving models of competition in high tech industries, environmental technologies and policies, and most recently cyber security, terrorism and emerging threats to national security.
I went to Harvard, where I earned an AB in Engineering and Applied Physics (cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) and a PhD in Business Administration (Managerial Economics). I am a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
I served under President Clinton at the White House National Security Council as Senior Director for Critical Infrastructure, and before that as the first Director of the Federal inter-agency Critical Infrastructure Assurance Office (CIAO). Prior to beginning my work in cyber security and national security, I was Senior Policy Advisor and Deputy Assistant to the Secretary of Commerce. I have also worked as a management consultant (BCG) and a Wall Street investment banker. After 8 years at Carnegie Mellon University as Professor of Technology and Public Policy, I am now in private practice as an author, researcher and advisor (Jeffrey Hunker Associates LLC)..
For a time I was a music concert promoter, focusing on bands in the lower half of the top forty. I am an avid supporter of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra..
In my off hours, I read a lot, try to improve my French and German, train for marathons, and go camping, canoeing, ice skating and skiing. I also like to garden. I'm not a bad cook either.
