I am the leading Research Associate in the Centre for Cybercrime and Computer Security (CCCS) at Newcastle University, applying my extensive experience in interdisciplinary research to provide direction and strategy in realising the positive impacts of the Centre to academia and local communities. In particular, I am currently investigating various novel ideas for providing usable technological solutions for victims of domestic violence, and looking into broader aspects of cybercrime, taking into account various human aspects involved.
