Personal profile

Personal profile

I've developed and led modules on Computer Forensics and Fundamentals of Cybersecurity (online short course) for several years. I teach various security-related topics at undergraduate and postgraduate level, including security in software engineering, digital forensics, and human aspects of security. To date I have supervised 70+ postgraduate research projects to completion. My research focuses on all levels of cybersecurity from individual to national level.

Teaching

CMP107, CMP307

Research interests

My research focuses primarily on information and cybersecurity. This includes a broad range of topics ranging from technical implementations, to management, and behavioural factors. Individuals are often considered to be the weakest link in security and I have a particular interest in human factors in (also called behavioural) security. Current problems I’m investigating are how to motivate secure behaviours in individuals and organisations, and understanding resistance to security recommendations. I also have an interest in the related area of information privacy.
