Bruno Oliveira Martins

Senior Researcher

Research Interests

My main research interests lie on the intersection between technological developments, security practices, and societal change. I currently lead three projects at PRIO: Counter-Drone Systems​, Transnational Academic Network for the Study of Armed Drones (TRANSAD), and INTERSECT: Technology - Security - Society Interplays in Europe (the latter with André Barrinha, Marieke de Goede, Karen Lund Pedersen and Mireille Hildrebrandt).

I am interested in several issues within the wider security studies agenda, and I've researched, taught and published on EU's security and defence policies, including counter-terrorism, EU-Israel-Palestine relations, and the politics of security and defence research.
