Mr Rose is responsible for advising the US Secretary of State on a wide variety of arms control, strategic policy, verification, and compliance issues. From 2009 to 2014, he served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Space and Defence Policy where he was responsible for key issues related to arms control and defence policy including missile defence, military space policy, chemical and biological weapons, and conventional arms control. Among his many degrees and awards, Mr Rose holds a Master’s degree in war studies from Kings’ College, University of London (1999).
