Bianca Torossian worked as a Strategic Analyst at HCSS from 2018-2021.
Her studies at The University of Sydney, Erasmus University Rotterdam, and Leiden University (The Hague), earned her a Bachelor’s degree in political science, political economy and sociology, and a Master’s degree in political science and international organization. At HCSS, Bianca contributed to a range of projects commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Dutch Ministry of Defence and NATO. She primarily focussed on the intersection between emerging technologies and conflict, with multiple publications to her name on hybrid and cyber conflict. A specific area of interest is the field of artificial intelligence in defense contexts, which tied into a HCSS research project that critically analyzes the challenges and opportunities posed by robotic and autonomous systems in the Dutch military.
