Sarah Wyatt is a former graduate from the University of Western Ontario’s International Relations H.B.A. program and a current Masters in International Public Policy Candidate at the Balsillie School of International Affairs. Sarah is a recipient of the Laurier Fellowship Grant through her admission to the Balsillie School, and subsequently has been working alongside three other colleagues on a project for Global Affairs Canada regarding privacy and data rights within the digital landscape. Sarah has also recently assisted Kristen Csenkey on the “Simplifying Emerging Technology” DND MINDS Project, which has increased Sarah’s interest in such topics as maintaining national sovereignty of innovation, critical infrastructure, and governance of emerging technologies. Sarah will bring her previous experience in security and emerging technology research to the North American and Arctic Defence and Security Network research assistantship with hopes to explore the intersections and associations between the two.
