  • Dagmar Rychnovská is a fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS). Between 2018 and 2020, she worked at the IHS as an ex-Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellow. Her project SECCON explored security controversies in emerging research and innovation. The main interest of her project was to understand how our societies balance the demands for scientific progress with security interests and with what implications for the practice of science and the politics of security.

    Dagmar is a political scientist specializing in critical approaches to International Relations and Security Studies. She holds a Ph.D. in International Relations (Charles University in Prague), an M.A. in Comparative and International Studies (ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich) and an LLM in Law and Politics of International Security (VU University Amsterdam). Prior to joining the IHS Vienna, she worked as a lecturer and researcher at the Charles University and Metropolitan University Prague.
