I am a Lecturer in Cybercrime in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Portsmouth. I completed my PhD in Psychology at the University of Lincoln where my work focused on developing a holistic, risk-based and future focused approach to deception. I conducted my post-doctoral research at the University of Malta, and in the School of Computing at the University of Portsmouth, with my later research focusing on human cyber security risk across working age populations.
My current research focuses on social and behavioural approaches to cybercrime and security. I am currently exploring perceptions of security and risk amongst software developers, innovative approaches to cyber deception for defence, and digital footprints and emissions.
