I'm a DPhil student in computer science, and a part of the Center for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security. I am interested in exploring the behaviour of smart devices in the home, with a particular focus on how the way devices are designed affects how users think and behave around them. Before coming to Oxford I studied for an MEng in Computer Science at the University of Warwick.
I currently lecture for the UNIQ computer science spring/summer schools and TA the following modules:
- Interaction Design (Software Engineering Masters)
- Structured Data (Software Engineering Masters)
- Computer Security (Undergraduate)
- Imperative Programming I & II (Undergraduate)
