CISSM is pleased to welcome Kathleen Vogel, a recently appointed associate professor at the School of Public Policy, who will be a senior fellow at the center. Vogel, who is currently finishing a Jefferson Science Fellowship at the U.S. Department of State, will be joining the school full-time in the Fall of 2017.
"Kathleen will be a valuable addition to CISSM and its expanding research agenda focused on developing innovative responses to dual-use technological threats and threats to human security," said CISSM Director Nancy Gallagher.
Vogel's recent research has focused on: assessing biological weapons threats; understanding how the U.S. intelligence communities integrate new technologies into intelligence assessment; anticipating how smart city technologies could be designed, developed, and implemented to suit their city needs for the future; and combining big data analytic approaches with qualitative social science methods to studying human trafficking.
Vogel was previously an associate professor in the Department of Political Science at North Carolina State University and was the director of its Science, Technology, and Society Program. Prior to that, she was an associate professor at Cornell University with a joint appointment in the Department of Science and Technology Studies and in the Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies. She holds a Ph.D. in biological chemistry from Princeton University.
