2020 Undergraduate Fellow Spotlight: Ryan Buscaglia

My name is Ryan Buscaglia. I am a 4th year undergraduate student studying Political and Social Thought and Foreign Affairs at the University of Virginia. In the Fall of 2019, I worked on a project to inform norms for the use of unmanned systems with the Hacking for Defense course at UVA. This summer, I’ll also serve as an intern with the National Security Innovation Network. I am motivated by bringing human-centered focus to address complex national security problems. My research interests broadly include arms control, nonproliferation, autonomous systems, and nationalism. I also run on the UVA track and field/cross country team, and in my free time one can find me running around trails in Charlottesville, Virginia.
