About Irja

Irja Malmio I am a Ph.D. student at the Defence University of Stockholm, Department of Military Studies, in collaboration with the Royal Institute of Technology, Philosophical Department. The title of my PhD project is “Systems Science for Defence and Security and Social Sustainability”, where I will approach sociotechnical defencesystems from a norm critical perspective. My research interests are based in the field of Critical Security Studies, where I am primarily interested in the social effects produced at the intersection between security and technology, especially normative assumptions that arise from securitized technology both in its intended and unintended form. Research interests also include Sustainability, Gender Studies, Epistemology, Pedagogy, Leadership, Socio-technological perspectives and Masculinity studies.
I have previously a MA in East Asian studies, and hold BA in Leadership under Strenuous Conditions.
