Ben Nimmo

Ben Nimmo analyses disinformation, fake news, bots and online influence campaigns for the Digital Forensic Research Lab at the Atlantic Council think-tank, based in Washington, DC. He is a former travel writer and wire journalist, and from 2011-14 he worked as a press officer at NATO, covering relations with Russia and Ukraine. In his spare time he scuba dives and plays the trombone, but has not yet worked out how to do both at once.
