Technology and International Security
Harry Oppenheimer is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Technology and International Security at the UC Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC) based in Washington, D.C. He is a political scientist studying the intersection of international security and the digital economy. In 2024, he will start as an assistant professor at the Georgia Tech School of Public Policy.
His research leverages novel data sources—from forensic malware analysis, to internet topography measurements, to texts mapping bureaucratic delegation. He examines issues such as how weaponized interdependence and international security shape data flows, how data flows promote regulatory cooperation, and how states develop institutions to respond to digital threats and harness growth. Prior to beginning his doctorate, he was a research associate for national security at the Council on Foreign Relations. His research is published in Public Opinion Quarterly and is currently under review at multiple journals. He received a B.A. from New York University, and an A.M. and Ph.D. from Harvard University.
