In 2003, Mr. Gormley left the consulting business and worked for the next 15 years as a faculty member and instructor at the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh and ten years as a Senior Fellow at the Washington office of the Monterey Institute of International Affairs. During his long career Mr. Gormley chaired or served on numerous Department of Defense and intelligence advisory panels and frequently testified before Senate and House committees of Congress. He has served as a consultant to the Brookings Institution, the RAND Corporation, and Sandia National Laboratories, among others. For the last three years he was one of 21 commissioners—seven each from the U.S., Germany, and Russia—overseeing the work of the “Deep Cuts Commission,” an international nongovernmental body charged with studying the challenges of achieving deep cuts in global nuclear arsenals.
Gormley has written prolifically on missile proliferation, missile defense, nuclear proliferation, and intelligence. He is the author of four books, one of which (Missile Contagion: Cruise Missile Proliferation and the Threat to International Security, 2008) was translated into Chinese, and nearly 250 journal articles, book chapters, monographs, invited papers, and op-eds.
