UNO is a force in national security research, and few scholars demonstrate that better than Gina Ligon, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Management in the College of Business Administration and Director of Research and Development in UNO’s Center for Collaboration Science. Ligon joins Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D., in this Maverick Minute to discuss some of her work.
The Center for Collaboration Science includes faculty from all across campus who solve problems through collaboration.
Dr. Ligon is part of the Radicalization and Violent Extremeism (RAVE) group to study problems related to terrorist groups such as how they collaborate. Students are also a part of this group.
Currently she is working with CIST faculty and faculty from Arizona State University to study a large cache of info from ISIS computers and cellphones to try and look at the future structural organization of ISIS.
