Dr. Nina Kollars

Naval War College

Nina Kollars is Associate Professor at the Naval War College and the Cyber & Innovation Policy Institute. Kollars' research investigates the security implications of the intersection of emerging technology, humans, and organizations. She is generally referred to as a bottom-up innovation scholar that looks at the role of practitioners in driving innovation. Her early work traced the innovative tinkering of U.S. soldiers in war, and the U.S. Army's capacity to harness and learn from that creativity. Her current work takes the bottom up analytical approach to cyber security. Kollars has been working with and studying the white hat hacking community for the past several years. She is currently preparing a book manuscript that reveals the national security contributions of the white hat hacking community to the United States. Prior to her Ph.D., Kollars was an accomplished researcher at a number of institutions including; the DuBois Institute at Harvard University, the Federal Research Division of the Library of Congress, and the World Bank. She has lectured broadly to national leaders and scholars on cyber security and innovation to include ShmooCon, the Sloan School of Business at MIT, National Security Council, and the Army Capabilities and Integration Center.
