Senior Researcher

Interests and experience

My main research interests lie on the intersection between technological developments, security practices, and societal change. In 2023 I work on different projects on emerging security technologies. These include RegulAir (a large, multi-annual research project on the integration of drones in the civilian airspace, that I lead), TRANSCEND (a Horizon Europe project dealing with societal impacts of EU security research, where I am WP leader), and Europe’s New Security Architecture Post-Ukraine War, a project that I lead.

I am a senior researcher at PRIO, where I am co-leader of the Security & Technology Research Group and a member of the PRIO Migration Centre.
