Nadiya Kostyuk's Visiting Fellowship

Visiting Fellowship Program

In May, Nadiya Kostyuk joined us for a Visiting Fellowship at The Hague Program on International Cyber Security at Leiden University's The Hague Campus. We sat down with her to hear about her fellowship experience.

Why were you interested in coming here?

The Hague Program on International Cyber Security is the leading program that focuses its attention on the evolving landscape of global cybersecurity and cyber conflict. It is a central hub that fosters connections among academics and policymakers at the national and international levels. I broadly study cyber power and how it affects domestic and international policy and politics. This fellowship is an ideal opportunity for a scholar like me to be immersed for a short period of time in the environment where the scholarship and policy-making related to various aspects of cybersecurity can thrive and take place.

What did you work on during the fellowship?

During the fellowship, I worked on the project related to the cyber front of the Russo-Ukrainian war. Instead of questioning whether cyber matters or not, I investigated when and which types of cyber actions matter, why they matter, and how they contribute to battlefield dynamics. I benefited from conversations with, and input from, researchers associated with The Hague Program.

What’s next for you?

This summer, I am thrilled to be moving from the Georgia Institute of Technology to Carnegie Mellon University to embark on an exciting new chapter in my academic journey! I can't wait to seize this incredible opportunity!
