Bio

Eric Jardine is an assistant professor of political science at Virginia Tech and a fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation. Eric's research focuses on the uses and abuses of the dark Web, measuring trends in cyber security, how people adapt to changing risk perceptions when using new security technologies, and the inherent politics surrounding both anonymity-granting technologies and encryption.

His work has been published in a number of peer-reviewed outlets, including New Media & Society, Journal of Cyber Policy, First Monday, Intelligence and National Security, Terrorism and Political Violence, and Studies in Conflict and Terrorism, among others. He is the co-author, with Fen Osler Hampson, of the book Look Who’s Watching: Surveillance, Treachery and Trust Online
