Marc Canellas has been selected as a Sam Nunn Security Program Fellow for Academic Year 2014-2015. Named for the Former U.S. Senator from Georgia, Sam Nunn, and supported by the Center for International Strategy, Technology, and Policy at Georgia Tech, the Sam Nunn Security Program seeks to advance the role of scientific and technical advice on issues of international security through education, research, outreach activities, and participation in the policy advisement process. Students will conduct research and develop a detailed policy proposal based on their technical background, as well as the training they receive in the Program’s weekly Security Seminar.
According to a statement from the Sam Nunn Security Program, in an unusually competitive year with a large number of high quality applicants, Marc was selected because of the caliber of work that he had demonstrated in his Ph.D. research and his potential for leadership on policy issues.
