I am an expert in nuclear politics, WMD nonproliferation, and the prevention of financial crime. I hold a Ph.D. in Politics, and I am a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS).

Currently, I am working on proliferation financing controls - ways for financial institutions to prevent proliferators from using the global financial system to finance WMD programs.

In this inspiring talk, Togzhan Kassenova uses poignant stories from Kazakhstan's history as a Soviet Union nuclear test site to encourage humanity to seek truth and act, even in the face of an oppressive political system. x This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
