Australian National University Lecturer in national security Dr Jennifer Hunt has joined the United States Studies Centre (USSC) as a non-resident fellow.
USSC CEO Professor Simon Jackman says, “We are thrilled to welcome Dr Hunt to the USSC team. Dr Hunt is an exciting, emerging talent in the Australian strategic affairs community, building expertise in non-conventional security challenges from health to disinformation to cyber.”
Dr Hunt has published on comparative national security policy of cyber and energy issues in the United States, Australia and the Arab Gulf. Her recent report, Pandemic V. Post-Truth: Misinformation in the age of COVID-19, for the Global Health Security Network examines the impact of disinformation and conspiracy theories during the coronavirus pandemic. This year, she also co-authored the Orbis report Shaping the Post-Liberal Order from Within: China’s Influence and Interference Operations in Australia and the United States.
Jackman adds, “Relations with China and COVID-19 are clearly among the most pressing challenges facing Australia. Dr Hunt brings a deep understanding of these issues and how the US-Australia relationship serves as a force-multiplier for Australian policy responses.”
