Matt Hourihan joined AAAS as director of the R&D Budget and Policy Program in December 2011. Prior to joining
AAAS, he served as a clean energy policy analyst at the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation (ITIF).
While at ITIF, he tracked federal energy R&D investments and innovation activities, and authored several white
papers and policy briefs exploring the role of innovation in solving the nation’s energy and climate challenges. He
also regularly coordinated Congressional briefings, conferences, and events bringing together leading experts in
government, industry, and academia. Previously, he served as Jan Schori Fellow at the Business Council for
Sustainable Energy, a coalition of energy firms and utilities working to engage policymakers for market-based solutions to sustainable energy development and climate change.

As a student, he interned with the AAAS Center for Science, Technology and Congress, now the Office of Government Relations. He earned a master’s degree in public policy with a focus on science and technology policy at George Mason University, and a B.A. in journalism from Ithaca College. Prior to graduate school, he spent five years working as a cause communications professional and as an award-winning journalist.
