Key Research Interests:

Cyber security; Behaviour change and operations; qualitative research methods

Research Interests

My research work is focused on two key areas. Cyber security and behavioural change and operations. My cyber-security research investigates security communications specifically focusing on how security specialists within the organisation align security processes with business goals and multiple roles, and how central security communications are framed and purposed for distribution internally. My behavioural change work considers mobile culture and our interactions with mobile devices in the workplace and particularly the role this plays in decision-making.

PhD Supervision

I am interested in hearing from potential PhD students who are keen to pursue work in the areas of cyber security and behavioural operations using empirical studies and qualitative research methods.
