Noelle Warkentin

Noelle Warkentin received her B.A. (honours) in psychology from the University of Manitoba, and thereafter took an interest in criminal behaviour, terrorism, and national security. This sparked her to explore graduate studies in criminology at SFU, where she is currently in the master’s program under the supervision of Dr. Richard Frank. She is interested in researching what motivates individuals to join extremist movements, and how the process of radicalization occurs in the online environment. In addition, she is interested in researching cyber-espionage, cyber-terrorism, cyber-warfare, and weapons dealing on the dark web. Recently, she has been researching cyber-threats against Canada’s critical infrastructure (CI), and the state of CI cyber-security as part of a project funded by Natural Resources Canada.
