Julia Slupska is a student on the DPhil programmes at the OII and Centre for Doctoral Training in Cybersecurity, and was previously a student on the MSc in Social Science of the Internet.

Julia’s research focuses on how cybersecurity concepts and practices can better serve targets of technologically-mediated abuse. She is also exploring how feminist theories and methodology—such as participatory action research and ethics of care—can improve cybersecurity. Previously, she completed the MSc in Social Science of the Internet on the role of metaphors in international cybersecurity policy.  Before joining the OII, Julia worked on an LSE Law project on comparative regional integration and coordinated a course on Economics in Foreign Policy for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.  She also works as a freelance photographer.
