Noel Foster is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Technology and International Security at the UC Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC) based in Washington, D.C. Noel’s scholarly interests lie in the intersection of grand strategy and domestic politics, with a focus on hybrid conflicts and the foreign policy of revisionist states. His fellowship will focus on Russian strategic thought, information operations, influence operations, and Chinese information operations in East Asia in comparative perspective through research into countermeasures to online information operations. He will draw on recent data on cyber incidents to contribute to the debate on the attribution problem in cyberattacks and its implications for international politics. Noel received his Ph.D. in politics from Princeton University.
