Davis to Influence Foreign Policy

Paul Davis, professor of mathematical sciences and former dean of WPI’s interdisciplinary and global studies program, has been named a Jefferson Science Fellow by the U.S. State Department.

Davis, along with five other professors from around the country, will lend his expertise to various U.S. department bureaus over the next year, helping shape and influence U.S. foreign policy by serving as an advisor. After his one-year assignment, Davis will remain a State Department consultant for five years.

The Jefferson Science Fellows program was established in 2003 to give science and technology a more prominent role in U.S. foreign policy.
