Research Interests

I research the impact of emerging technologies on security practices. My doctoral and fellowship research explores the implications of AI-enabled technology in the military. I also hold research interests in the human aspects of cybersecurity and have freelance experience across cyber intelligence, strategy, policy research and security risk management.

Wider Outreach

I frequently contribute to broader discussions on cybersecurity, including cyber threat intelligence, human aspects of cybersecurity, security management principles, privacy and data protection, and diversity in relation to the cyber skills gap. 

I have also designed and led workshops on academic research design, geopolitics and cybersecurity, and cyber strategy.
