I primarily work as a Research Fellow in Computer Science pursing novel approaches to maintain organisational cybersecurity. Within my role, I also act as a lecturer within the Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security (CDT) and as a supervisor for various undergraduate, masters and doctoral projects. I am a JR Fellow in Wolfson College Oxford and a member of Cyber Security Oxford.

There are various projects that I have been involved in, including: Identity Security in Cyberspace, Cybersecurity Capacity Models, Risk Control Effectiveness, Corporate Insider Threat Detection: Cyber Security Inside and Out (CITD), and TEASE (Trust Enabling Augmented-Reality Support for Information-Environments).

In addition to my role at Oxford, I held a Research Fellow post at the University of Warwick in the Department of Psychology.

I completed a PhD in Computer Science (specialising in online security for businesses) at the University of Warwick. I also hold an MSc in Internet Computing (Distinction) from the University of Hull, and a BSc in Computer Science and Accounting (First Class) from the University of the West Indies.

Outside of academia, I have had roles in industry ranging from software development to Web application development, and researching the application and exploitation of new technologies within business.
