Fabio Cristiano

Doctoral Candidate

Political Science, Peace and Conflict Studies

Main research areas

Fabio Cristiano's main research interest evolves around debates on cyberwar and security. In his doctoral thesis, Fabio delineates an ontology of cyberwar that, transcending pure securitarian concerns, looks at the political subjectivities that are constructed through this specific context of war. Rooted in IR, conflict studies, and critical security, his research speaks to debates on virtuality/reality and unity/multiplicity in political thought. 

Fabio Cristiano convenes and teaches courses at the Department of Political Science, Peace & Conflict Studies, BIDS - Interdisciplinary BA in Development Studies, Graduate School of Social Science, and Center for Educational Development.
