Robert Gorwa

Robert Gorwa is a graduate student at the Oxford Internet Institute. His doctoral work will look at the effects of technology on various international relations phenomena, with a focus on the internet and its implications for international security, diplomacy, and conflict, and he is particularly interested in the way that governments and other actors use social media to exert international influence over their adversaries and allies. His writing on technology and politics has been featured in Foreign Affairs, The Washington Post, Wired, and other outlets, and he is the author of the recent project report on political bots and disinformation in Poland. He tweets occasionally at @rgorwa, more frequently at @polbots (the project’s twitter account), and manages the ComProp project website.
