Chris Meserole is a fellow in Foreign Policy at the Brookings Institution and director of research and policy of the Brookings Artificial Intelligence and Emerging Technology Initiative. He is also an adjunct professor at Georgetown University.

Meserole's current research focuses on the intersection of emerging technology and international and domestic security. How can democratic societies ensure that new technologies empower liberal regimes rather than authoritarian ones? And how can they prevent the diffusion of new technology from leading to greater war and violence, rather than peace and security? From disinformation campaigns to autonomous weapons, modern technologies have placed longstanding institutions and policies under immense strain. Meserole's research attempts to develop governance models for technology that are more robust to contemporary competition and conflict.

Meserole is a graduate of Harvard, Yale, and the University of Maryland. His work has appeared or been featured in the New Yorker, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, Wired, and other publications.
