Aaron Spitler is a graduate of the College of William & Mary, where he received a BA in Sociology with a concentration in Globalization Studies. His research focuses on the socio-political implications of emerging technologies, especially within the context of multicultural societies. During his time in undergrad, Aaron completed a white paper on the myriad threats posed by historical disinformation, emphasizing the role of social media in spreading foreign-sourced propaganda. After earning his degree, he traveled to Kosovo on a grant provided by the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. Over the course of six months, he interviewed numerous stakeholders in the information and communication technology (ICT) sector to learn how it played a role in the country’s integration into the international community. Upon returning to the United States, he has continued to explore this topic while pursuing a graduate degree from The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.
