Sofia Romansky is a Junior Strategic Analyst at HCSS. Her primary research interests concern the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on the social and military domains, issues around narratives and disinformation in online spheres, and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. As an intern at HCSS in 2022, Sofia conducted research on the military use of information in the first seven months of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.  

On the topic of AI, Sofia has researched the hardware and software components which enable the application of AI to autonomous systems and the impact of post-2018 generative AI on social stability. Within these projects, her focus has been primarily on computer vision and multimodal generative models. 

Sofia has also researched the green transition in the military as part of the Young Thinkers program of the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS). As a Young Thinker, Sofia spoke on a panel at the NATO Youth Summit.
