BiographyI am a DPhil student in Cyber Security, focusing on monitoring solutions for large-scale networks. My research looks at using sonification (the mapping of data to sound) to improve network monitoring capabilities in Security Operations Centres (SOCs). Sonification systems have been proposed, and to some extent tested, for use in this area before. My work looks at refining appropriate sound designs for the network monitoring context, and validating the usefulness of sonification systems for improving monitoring capabilities.
Before joining Oxford, I completed an MSc with Distinction in Cryptography at Royal Holloway, University of London, for which my dissertation explored adversary model in authenticated key exchange protocols. I also hold a First Class BA in Mathematics and Music from Cardiff University, where my studies included a year in the Music department at Université Paris-Sorbonne.
