Isabel Coderre is a Ph.D. student in security, intelligence, and defence at Carleton University’s Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, with a master’s degree in infrastructure protection and international security. For the last seven years, she has worked in analytical and management roles within Canada’s public service. Coderre obtained a professional designation in Critical Infrastructure Protection (PCIP) from Canada’s Critical Infrastructure Institute in 2014.
Coderre’s planned studies relate directly to terrorism and security, speaking to TSAS’ priorities: exploring the nature and consequences of home-grown, lone-actor, and right-wing extremism and violence in Canada and abroad. Her applied policy-making studies will bridge the study of terrorism with the study of critical infrastructure protection, focusing on a largely underexplored component of Canadian critical infrastructure protection that has emerged as a Government of Canada priority.
