I am a Senior Researcher in the department. My research focuses on enabling better control of personal information on connected devices, such as smartphone devices or Internet of Things devices. For this, I take a human-centric approach, focusing on understanding real users' needs, in order to design technologies that can make a real impact. More particularly, I am actively working on raising children's and parents' awareness of privacy risks related to the use of tablet computers or connected toys. For this, I work closely with schools, families and organisations that have young children's best interests in mind. I moved back to the University of Oxford in 2015, after a short career break. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Manchester in 2007, and an EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2009. Between 2013 and 2015 I was a Lecturer in Lancaster University.
