Nadiya Kostyuk is currently a doctoral student in the political science/public policy joint program at the University of Michigan. Prior to her studies, she worked as a Program Coordinator for the EastWest Institute’s Worldwide Cybersecurity Initiative, where she currently serves as a Fellow. Her field experiences in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Estonia, Ukraine, Russia, Serbia and the Czech Republic provided her with a better understanding of each country’s unique political climate and ultimately helped Nadiya discover her research passion: relationship of cybercrime to international security, interdependence and cooperation and state sovereignty. Nadiya holds her master of science in global affairs from New York University and her bachelor’s from John Jay College (CUNY) where she was a McNair Scholar and Vera Fellow. She grew up in Berezne, Ukraine.
