Meet Our Ambassadors

2020 - 2021

The Ambassador Board is a group of graduate students and professionals selected to serve as strategic advisors for the CSET Foretell project launched June 2020. Ambassadors work virtually to help engage our community of forecasters by leading their own forecasting teams, ultimately helping to generate the valuable insights from the project that serve the policymaking community.

Ambassadors have backgrounds in technology policy, security, engineering, computer science, law, and business. Board members reside all over the United States, covering the East, West, and Midwest, and represent more than 3 countries, including China and the United Kingdom.
