Her current research agenda focuses on national strategies during cyber conflict. She explores the reasons why – despite the fact that cyber attacks are covert actions in nature, and therefore can be hidden or denied – in many cases countries choose to reveal the attack and “go public” about it. In her research, Gil is developing a new conceptual-theoretical framework and is examining it by combining qualitative and quantitative research methods.
Gil holds an M.A in Security Studies from Tel-Aviv University (Magna Cum Laude).
