Jessica Davis is many things: a NPSIA PhD student, the President of Insight Threat Intelligence & CASIS and a regular commentator on global security research, policy and practice. Today, she is also among the top 25 finalists for the SSHRC 2023 Storytellers Challenge.

The Social Science and Research Council (SSHRC) annual competition, now in its 10th edition, challenges postsecondary students across the country to inspire audiences with a research story—in up to 300 words or three minutes—of how SSHRC-funded research is making a difference in the lives of Canadians.
