SIPR Category:

I come from a computer security background in computer science and I measure cybercrime using network measurements, honeypots, or web scraping. I work with criminologists or other social scientists to understand why the observed variations in crime occurred. I completed my undergraduate, PhD and postdoc at the University of Cambridge’s Department of Computer Science and Technology and am now a Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Strathclyde’s Computer & Information Sciences department.
I am looking for PhD candidates.


I deliver research that enables the accurate and ethical measurement of security and cybercrime. By measuring security and cybercrime we can monitor improvement, evaluate interventions and inform regulators. This reveals which techniques work and provides the missing economic incentives to improve security and reduce cybercrime. I work with researchers across disciplines to understand the full picture.
