Through a collaboration with the U.S. Army War College, the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington will launch a new initiative in spring 2021 to increase understanding of the changing configurations of technology and international security. The focus will be on cyber resilience, energy security and counterterrorism. Activities will include research, publications, courses and public events and workshops.
The initiative, to start March 16, will be led by Sarah Lohmann, Acting Assistant Professor at the Jackson School, with the generous support of the U.S. Army War College. Lohmann will come from posts as the Senior Cyber Fellow with the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies at Johns Hopkins University and as UW Communications Leadership Faculty on big data and emerging technology.
