Dr. Gil Baram received her Ph.D. from Tel Aviv University’s School of Political Science, Government and International Relations, and was the recipient of the Fulbright postdoctoral fellowship. Her postdoctoral research at CISAC focuses on national decision-making during cyber conflict. Dr. Baram explores the shift in the longstanding convention of silence on cyber conflict as a covert practice. She studies the reasons state actors are increasingly addressing cyber intrusions publicly despite their covert nature, and uses new data and combined methods to investigate when and under what circumstances they are likely to decide various attribution strategies.

Previously, Dr. Baram has held fellow positions with the Centre of Excellence for National Security at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and the Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center at Tel Aviv University and served as Head of Research at the Israeli think tank Yuval Ne'eman workshop for Science, Technology and Security. She holds an M.A. (Magna Cum Laude) in Security Studies from Tel Aviv University.
