Research Fellow in Cyber Security., University of Leeds

I am a Research Fellow at the Centre for Criminal Justice Studies in the School of Law where I conduct research in the areas of cybersecurity, cryptocurrency, and cybercrime. Before joining the University of Leeds, I worked as a Lecturer at the National University of Ireland, Galway with the Business Information Systems group.

In my PhD thesis, I investigated how various factors affect employee security behaviour. Data was collected in the United States and Ireland. My research interests include Information Security, Cryptocurrency, Cybercrime in Cloud, Ransomware. Currently, I am working on a EPSRC-funded project titled “EconoMical, PsycHologicAl and Societal Impact of RanSomware (EMPHASIS)”
