Dr Rikke Bjerg Jensen

Personal profile

As a social scientist and an ethnographer researching collective security practices within increasingly technological and mobile communities, my work focuses on how technology and the information flows that it enables facilitate multiple security logics and perspectives. My research is driven by the co-production of knowledge with diverse communities, in order to understand the wider security implications of information technology. In so doing, my work explores how the human-technology entanglement facilitates and/or hinders different feelings of security as well as different security visions amongst groups of people living and working on the edge of society. I have undertaken extensive fieldwork as part of several distinct research projects, in the UK and overseas, with maritime and seafaring communities, refugee and migrant communities, as well as military personnel and their families; with the view to facilitate critical discussions and impact upon technology design and implementation.

I am Chair of the Crisis, Security and Conflict Communication Working Group of the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR), on the editorial board for Westminster Papers in Communication and Culture (WPCC), I lead one optional module as part of the MSc in Information Security - Human Aspects of Information Security and Privacy – and I supervise a number of brilliant doctoral students focusing on social and critical aspects of information security.
