We are starting off September with many new additions to the VIEWS teams in Oslo and Uppsala, who we are happy to present below!

At PRIO, Chandler Williams continues on the VIEWS team after his two years as Research Assistant. Since August, he is a Doctoral Researcher working on developing forecasting methods on armed groups’ engagement in violent conflict.

The Oslo team also has two new Research Assistants, Noorain Syed Kazmi and Sara Kallis. Noorain recently finished his Master’s in Industrial IT and Automation at the University of South-Eastern Norway, while Sara joins us from Geneva, Switzerland, where she completed her Master’s in Political Science and International Relations at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies.

The Uppsala team welcomes Xiaolong Sun, who also joined as a Research Assistant. Xiaolong is studying Information and Network Engineering at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, specialising in Multimedia Data Processing and Analysis. Finally, we welcome Alexa Timlick and Marina Matic, our new interns as part of their Master of Peace and Conflict Studies at Uppsala University.
