Nicole Tishler is a PhD candidate in International Conflict Management and Resolution at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University. Drawing from communications, media studies, social psychology, and security studies, her research seeks to examine the characteristics of terrorism hoaxes, their perpetrators, and their implications for society.
Nicole is a recipient of OGS and the Joseph-Armand Bombardier CGS Masters and Doctoral scholarships. Her paper entitled “C, B, R, or N: The Influence of Related Industry”—published in the TSAS-sponsored special issue of the Canadian Graduate Journal of Sociology and Criminology [Vol. 2 Issue 2 (2013)] and as a TSAS working paper—was recently awarded a Carleton University Graduate Student Open Access Award. This past year, Nicole conducted extracurricular research on crisis communications in Canada for the Conference Board of Canada (publication pending), funded via Public Safety Canada’s Research Affiliate Program.
