Staff

For over 75 years, FAS has fostered the voices of world-class experts and early-career researchers alike from a variety of scientific, academic, and professional backgrounds. With experience in aeronautical engineering, biology, environmental science, government, physics, nuclear engineering, law, political science, business, defense, and more, FAS experts are uniquely situated to provide skilled analysis and convert ideas into policy impact.

FAS also support fellows through the Impact Fellowship, a selective fellowship program that supports the development and placement of emerging scientific and technical talent within high-impact roles across the federal government, and the Policy Entrepreneur Fellowship, designed to empower and guide selected early-career participants to move their policy proposals from idea to reality.
