Claudine is a DPhil candidate in Cyber Security. Before coming to Oxford, she obtained a BA in Political Science from UC San Diego and a Master of Law (MLaw) in Legal Issues, Crime, and Security of Information Technologies from the University of Lausanne (Switzerland). 

Claudine's research investigates the role of individual differences in predicting and moderating experiences of subjective harm associated with social media use. To explore that relationship, she is preparing a large-scale collection of in-situ data on emotional responses to social media use and context using a mobile experience sampling method (ESM). She also plans to conduct a series of participatory design workshops that will explore innovative ways to visualise the data collected from the ESM in a manner that provides users with meaningful insight into their social media use.

Outside of her research, Claudine serves as the Technology Policy advisor for We and AI, a non-profit organisation that works to increase awareness and understanding of bias in artificial intelligence amongst the general UK population and co-host of the forthcoming cyber security podcast Proving the Negative.
