Director of Research
Alicia researches how we shape — and are shaped — by a changing information space. With more than a decade of experience in researching and analysing the information environment, focusing on propaganda and disinformation, Alicia conducts content and network analysis, and has developed original models for identifying and analysing digital propaganda campaigns. Alicia applies this learning to integrating information activities in support of government and military training exercises. Since 2017 alone, she shared her work and insights with senior government, military and academic experts at Wilton Park, Oxford and Ryerson Universities, the Hedayah Centre, NATO’s ARRC and the Multi National Information Operations Experiment, the NATO-USSOCOM Joint Senior PsyOps Conference, the UK’s JIAG, and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Alicia’s work has been featured in the CBC, Forbes, and The Strategy Bridge. She will begin PhD studies at King’s College in 2018 on information warfare.
