Academic Dean for Faculty of Computer Science

My current subject specific research centres on cybersecurity and digital forensics - particularly on approaches to proactively reducing cybercrime; evaluating threat sharing protocols and procedures; and professional accreditation in digital forensics. I am also interested in pedagogic research in computer science - focusing on problem based learning but also assessment and feedback.
