Sudhakar, who graduated with a double major in computer science and economics and critical intelligence studies from Rutgers in May, said, “I appreciate the opportunity to create awareness about this under-represented subject. The analysis follows a series of reports that NCRI and Rutgers Centre have released since 2020 that examine conspiracy theories and the use of social media networks to incite widespread, real-world violence.
