Alicia Wanless is a Doctoral Researcher at the King’s Centre for Strategic Communications
Alicia researches how we shape — and are shaped — by a changing information space. With more than a decade of experience in researching and analysing the information environment, focusing on propaganda, Alicia conducts content and network analysis, and has developed original models for identifying and analysing digital propaganda campaigns.
Alicia applies this learning to support government, military and major tech companies to develop policies and integrate information activities into training programs that better reflect how the information environment is manipulated. She has shared her work and insights with senior government, military and academic experts at Wilton Park, Oxford and Ryerson Universities, the Hedayah Centre, NATO’s ARRC and the Multi National Information Operations Experiment, the NATO-USSOCOM Joint Senior PsyOps Conference, the UK’s JIAG, and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
As a PhD Researcher at King’s College, Alicia is exploring alternative frameworks for understanding the information environment.
Alicia’s work has been featured in the CBC, Forbes, and The Strategy Bridge, and she has co-authored numerous academic papers and chapters on related topics. Much of Alicia’s writing can be found on her website.
