Former Disinformation Governance Board chief Nina Jankowicz has registered as a foreign agent.

Registration documents from Nov. 18 asserted that she is now working for the United Kingdom-based non-profit Centre for Information Resilience, according to the Washington Examiner.

"Jankowicz works regularly via online communication platforms with CIR employees based in the UK in order to further the goals of CIR," the filing reads. Included in the filing was an "about the role" section indicating the CIR sought "an experienced disinformation expert to raise our profile among policymakers, media and potential donors based in the United States."

"The Centre for Information Resilience is a UK based, independent, non-profit social enterprise," the group asserted in the same document. "We counter disinformation, expose human rights abuses through open source and combat online harms targeting women and minorities."

Jankowicz briefly headed up the Department of Homeland Security's DGB after its creation earlier this year. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, however, rescinded its charter just months later amid a Republican rebuke of the board and an advisory committee rejecting the need for such an entity. Jankowicz herself came under fire over her own past comments deriding parental activists who opposed teaching Critical Race Theory in schools.
