Personal profile

My research interests orbit around everyday security practices enabled through digital and analogue technologies. More specifically, my research focuses on how technology, and the information flows that it enables challenge our understanding of proximity and presence. I am therefore particularly interested in how the human-technology entanglement facilitates and/ or hinders different security visions. I have undertaken extensive fieldwork, as part of several distinct research projects, in the UK and overseas with the British military, NATO and in corporate settings to explore and understand the wider human-technology-security nexus. Since arriving at Royal Holloway in 2013, I have also secured funding for and been involved in a number of research projects that all cut across my areas of interest and specialisation.

I am Chair of the Crisis, Security and Conflict Communication Working Group of the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR), and on the editorial board for Westminster Papers in Communication and Culture (WPCC). I lead an optional course on ‘Human Aspects of Information Security and Privacy’ as part of the MSc in Information Security. I currently supervise three PhD students focusing on different aspects of civil rights and freedoms in a digital age.
