Research interests

Dr Barrinha joined the department in September 2017, having previously worked at the University of Kent, University of Coimbra and Canterbury Christ Church University.

He is currently working on the role of new technologies in the constitution of security policies (mostly) in Europe, with a special focus on cybersecurity. He was awarded, in 2019, a Leverhulme Trust Research Fellowship to study the emergence of cyber-diplomacy as an international practice.
