Brian Sergi is a native Pennsylvanian who graduated from Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service in 2012. Having majored in Science, Technology, and International Affairs, he is particularly interested in issues of science policy, including energy politics, renewable and nuclear power, and innovation strategy. He has also studied philosophy, physics, and Spanish. At school, Brian was heavily involved in Model United Nations, and competed and staffed in many conferences. In 2011, he worked for the Department of Energy’s Argonne Lab collecting data on the proliferation of radiological devices in Latin America. Brian also has been fortunate for the opportunity to work extensively with one of his professors, contributing research for his book describing the international innovation system.

He is an avid albeit relatively tame Philadelphia sports fan, with a particular love for watching Flyers hockey.
