Fabio Cristiano is a doctoral candidate at the Department of Political Science. His research looks at the cyberwarfare dimension of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In particular, Fabio is interested in delineating an ontology of cyberwar by looking at the type(s) of political subjectivity that are constructed in this specific context of war.
