I am a lecturer within the Division of Cybersecurity with a focus on introductory programming, software development processes and HCI.
My background is in HCI and previous research has focused on accessibility and user centred design. My current research interests surround usability challenges involved in cyber security in particular the suitability of different authentication methods for children. I am exploring how best to introduce passwords to children and how to embed good cyber security habits in them from a young age.
In addition I maintain an interest in the boundaries between a user's virtual and physical life and how they can protect their identity while engaging in online communities.
