The STAS leads efforts to augment S&T personnel and literacy at the Department, to strengthen outreach to the domestic and international S&T community, and to foster mid- to long-term strategic planning to address science, engineering and technology issues in foreign policy at State Department and within the U.S. government, including the defense and intelligence communities.

Mr. Reynolds began his career in 1974 with Systems Sciences Incorporated, Washington, D.C., as a researcher for energy and public health issues. He joined the Federal Energy Agency in 1975 and, subsequently, the Energy Information Administration of the Department of Energy (DOE), where he specialized in electricity, nuclear power and energy supply and demand forecasting and analysis. From 1983-1986 Reynolds was posted in Paris as DOE Representative for Europe in the US Mission to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. He returned to Washington as Deputy Director for the DOE Office of International R&D Cooperation where he managed the U.S./U.S.S.R. Peaceful Uses of Atomic Energy agreement. He is an expert on the Three Mile Island and Chernobyl accidents.

Mr. Reynolds joined the State Department in 1990 as Deputy Director of the Office of Science and Technology Cooperation and, in 1994-96, served as S&T advisor to the U.S./Russia Cooperative Commission co-chaired by Vice President Al Gore and Russian Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin.
