Wanless conducts content and network analysis, and has developed original models for identifying and analyzing digital propaganda campaigns. With more than a decade of experience in researching and analyzing the information environment, focusing on propaganda and information warfare, Wanless applies this learning to support government, military, and major tech companies to develop policies and integrate information activities into training programs that better reflect how the information environment is manipulated.

Her work has been featured in the CBC, Forbes, and The Strategy Bridge.
