Dr. Piotr Lis

I am an early career researcher who was awarded a PhD from Royal Holloway, University of London, in 2012. Since June 2012 I have been employed as a Lecturer in Economics at Coventry University. I received an MSc in Economics from the Poznan University of Economics, Poland, in 2007. My research interests are broadly in economics of armed conflict and economics of terrorism.

My research often incorporates elements of economics and political science, for example I have been working on a study of sensitivity of public opinion to war-related costs (casualty sensitivity). My most recent projects analyse the roots of domestic terrorism and the role of social online media in the diffusion of unrest.
