CSS PhD Student Presents @ NATO Defence Against Terrorism Centre of Excellence

Joseph Shaheen, CSS PhD student, was recently invited to share some of his work at the NATO Defence Against Terrorism Centre of Excellence in Ankara, Turkey as a part of a Symposium on the relationship between Media and Terrorism.

His lecture, titled “Daesh’s Use of Social Media: Effective Use of Self-organizing Networks” discussed the process of analysis that was used to produce an earlier publication for the NATO STRATCOM Centre of Excellence, as well as showcased a new agent-based model developed at our program for the successful prediction of extremism on social media.
