Bernard Amadei Named Science Envoy

You are here

cue-headshot-amadei_0.jpgProfessor Bernard Amadei was appointed by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in November to be one of three new science envoys who will help strengthen U.S. ties with other countries to address global challenges.

Amadei holds the Mortenson Endowed Chair in Global Engineering at CU-Boulder, and is widely known as the founder of the nonprofit organization Engineers Without Borders-USA, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2012 with more than 12,000 students, faculty, and professional members across the country.

Amadei, along with professors Susan Hockfield of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Barbara Schaal of Washington University in St. Louis, will seek to deepen existing ties, foster new relationships with foreign counterparts, and discuss potential areas of collaboration that will help address global challenges and realize shared goals.

The science envoys travel in their capacity as private citizens and advise the White House, the U.S. Department of State, and the U.S. scientific community about the insights they gain from their travels and interactions.
