Biography

I am a Computing Scientist working on all aspects of Human-Centred Security and Privacy. I was educated at the Universities of Pretoria, South Africa and Glasgow. I am particularly interested in deploying behavioural science techniques to improve security behaviours, and in encouraging end-user privacy-preserving behaviours. 

In 2016/17 I was one of five UK Cyber Security Fulbright Awardees and spent 7 months working with Prof Merrill Warkentin at Mississippi State University in Starkville, Mississippi.I joined the Division of Cybersecurity at the University of Abertay in October 2017.

I teach two courses called Engineering Resilient Systems with Adam Sampson and Xavier Bellekens, one at Honours level and one at Masters level. These courses bring together concepts of human-centred security, machine learning and secure software engineering.

 

Interests

My research area is Human-Centred Security. Basically I want to improve the boundary where humans and cyber security meet.
