Personal profile

Research interests

I am currently researching how identity may change over time and across various contexts online, and what the factors are that cause these sometimes subtle changes in behaviour, self-presentation, and identity portrayal online. I am also interested in data-driven research of behaviour to both understanding and potentially predict behaviour. In another strand of work, I am working with colleagues in the computer science department looking at AI Ethics and the importance of privacy and transparency.  

I am associated with CREST research, which has a focus on understanding Security Threats.

I am worked as a Policy Advisor at the Cabinet Office alongside my doctoral studies. 

Teaching interests

I have regularly run NVivo workshops for MSc students in the Management School.

I have also been a lab demonstrator for UG Management courses.
