PhD Researcher in Information Security

CDT in Cyber Security - Royal Holloway, University of London

I am a PhD researcher within the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Cyber Security at Royal Holloway, University of London. My current research centres around systems security, particularly leveraging hardware capabilities for building depending many-core operating systems, which I am conducting as a member of the S3Lab. I also have wider research interests in areas related to usable security, and discussions surrounding security aspects of software development practices.

Prior to starting my PhD, I completed an MSci (Hons) in Computer Science at Lancaster University. During my time at Lancaster I worked as a Research Associate on a number of projects ranging from large-scale language processing pipelines to augmenting network monitoring systems using Software Defined Networking (SDN).
