The UCD Politics and International Relations Society is delighted to welcome expert speaker Dr. Paul Gill who will discuss his research into the fascinating phenomenon of "Lone Actor" Terrorism. Dr. Gill is a senior lecturer in Security and Crime Science at the University College London. Prior to taking a position at UCL, Dr. Gill was a postdoctoral research fellow at the International Center for the Study of Terrorism at Pennsylvania State University. His projects focused on various aspects of terrorist behavior including the IED development, creativity, terrorist network structures, and lone-actor terrorism and were funded by the Office of Naval Research, the Department of Homeland Security, DSTL, the European Union, and the National Institute of Justice. His doctoral research examined the underlying individual and organizational motivations behind suicide bombing. In recognition of this outstanding work, Dr. Gill was awarded the Jean Blondel Prize for the best Ph.D. thesis in Political Science in Europe for 2010. Dr. Gill holds a Ph.D. in Political Science, an M.A. in International Relations, and a BSocSc(Int) from the School of Politics and International Relations in University College Dublin, Ireland. Please come along and join us for what is sure to be an interesting event. Light refreshments will be provided at the post-event reception.
