White House Office of Science and Technology Policy

Dr. Cyrus Wadia is the Assistant Director for Clean Energy & Materials R&D with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy where he is advising the Executive Office of the President on Federal policy that accelerates innovation and deployment of advanced material systems for energy, national security, and human welfare.

Cyrus is on leave from Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL) and the Haas School of Business where he holds a dual appointment as: Faculty & Co-Director of Clean Tech to Market and Research Scientist. His research in both exhaustible resource economics and the aqueous chemistry of nanoparticles is motivated by the pursuit of new low cost energy technologies using earth abundant materials. Cyrus was recently honored for his groundbreaking work with earth-abundant nanoparticle solar cells as a recipient of the MIT Technology Review Young Innovator award.

Prior to his work at LBNL, Cyrus spent over 7 years in Silicon Valley launching new technology to market. First as an engagement manager with R.B. Webber & Co where he worked with over 15 different venture backed startups; and next as a Senior Product Manager with AvantGo, where he completed several successful new product introductions. More recently, Cyrus founded a boutique Internet services startup specializing in complex data analysis for which he now serves as Chairman of the Board.

Cyrus earned his PhD in Energy & Resources from U.C. Berkeley and holds both an M.S. and S.B. in Chemical Engineering from MIT.
