Michael Kratsios, the deputy assistant in the federal Office of Science and Technology Policy under the Trump administration, appears to have no background in science, according to an article published in Scientific American.

"A job that's been held by some of the nation's top scientists is now occupied by a 31-year-old politics major from Princeton University," writes Scott Waldman.

"And it's unlikely to change soon, observers say, leaving President Trump without a science adviser as the administration wrestles with a severe outbreak of the flu, lead-poisoned drinking water and record-breaking disasters that many scientists say are sharpened by rising temperatures.

Waldman says that more than a year into his term, Trump hasn't identified a potential nominee for the key position held by prominent scientists in Republican and Democratic administrations alike.

"That means the job falls to Michael Kratsios … At least for now. Kratsios graduated from Princeton in 2008 with a political science degree and a focus on Hellenic studies,” he writes.
