My PhD was in Natural Language Processing but over the years my research and teaching interests have evolved to focus on user interfaces, security, web design, Artificial Intelligence and user experience.
I am a member of the Security Research Group and have recently supervised to completion two externally funded PhDs in areas of Usable Security and DataVisualistaion.
As a STEM ambassador, I have previously worked closely with Dundee Science Centre and local schools to encourage interest in all things computing.
Something I’m always keen to convey is that computers can do great and exciting things but creating the software tools that enable us to do those things – whether it is mobile apps, websites, security protocols, or digital forensic tools – is just as exciting.
I am Programme Tutor for MSc Ethical Hacking and Cybersecurity and BSc (Hons) Web, Design and Communication, as well as Module Tutor for Honours Projects for BSc Programmes within the School.
Modules that I lead and contribute to
CMP107 Development Practice
CMP508 Information Network and Security Management
CMP402 Honours Project Execution
CMP401 Honours Project Scoping and Proposal
CMP403 Honours Project Dissertation
My PhD falls within the area of Natural Language Processing but my research interests have developed over a number of years. At present my research interests are in aspects of User Interfaces, Usable Security and Web Design. I have successfully supervised 6 PhD, 2 MPhil and 2 MbR in area of AI, Security and User Experience. I have been internal examiner for 5 PhD examinations.

I have been External Examiner for Computing and Web Development undergraduate degree programmes at University of Portsmouth, University of Teesside, University of Hull - Doncaster College and University of Durham - Stockton College.
I have been a STEM ambassador working closely with Dundee Science Centre and local schools to encourage interest in all things computing. I want to stress that computers with their many software tools can do great and exciting things. However it is just as exciting to create those software tools whether it is mobile apps, websites, security protocols, digital forensic tools .
