Anjuli Shere is an analyst, writer and researcher. She is working as a research fellow at Harvard Kennedy School's Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy, while also pursuing a doctorate in Cyber Security at the University of Oxford. Shere's research centers on emerging threats to journalists from new internet-connected technologies. She is particularly interested in exploring these issues in democracies that are currently facing strains from outside influences and new legislation: Taiwan, Australia, the U.K. and the U.S. She has presented her research via SPRITE+, IoTSF, Al Jazeera, The Conversation and The New Statesman. Additionally, she was an intelligence analyst on Channel 4’s "Hunted" and "Celebrity Hunted" for six series (2017-2020) and is a “Digital Sherlock” with the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab. Inspired by her work as a research analyst at the Association for International Broadcasting, she is creating a toolkit for news organizations and journalists to improve the protection of their staff and sources against threats from the Internet of Things. Her research combines theoretical computer science, international relations and security, cybersecurity, law, and journalism training with policy-oriented practical solutions, developed through mixed methods.
