James Revill is a Research Fellow with the Harvard Sussex Program at SPRU. Over the course of completing his PhD prior to joining the Harvard Sussex Program he worked as a consultant to the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR) and completed research fellowships with the Landau Network Centro Volta in Italy and the Bradford Disarmament Research Centre in the UK. Revill’s research interests focus on the evolution of the biological and chemical weapons treaty regime, especially analysis of the Biological Weapons Conventions evolution, the interplay between science and security and the role and risk of non-state groups in chemical, biological and explosive terrorism. He has published widely in these areas, most recently with a book length study of the history of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and a series of paper on compliance in the context of the Biological Weapons Convention.
