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.

Professor Amadei holds the Mortenson Endowed Chair in Global Engineering and is the founding president of Engineers Without Borders-USA.  He is an elected member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering whose research has focused on rock mechanics and engineering geology.
