Andrew Natsios, executive professor and Director of the Scowcroft Institute of International Affairs at Texas A&M’s Bush School of Government and Public Service, is a former administrator for USAID and managed reconstruction programs in Iraq, Afghanistan and Sudan. He served as U.S. special envoy to Sudan in 2006-2007, retired from the U.S. Army Reserves at the rank of lieutenant colonel after 23 years and is a veteran of the Gulf War. He is an expert in post-war reconstruction, U.S. aid in the Middle East and foreign policy.
