Personal profile

Research Interests

My primary interest is in applying ML to real world problems in the area of cyber security, digital forensics and systems administration. I have particular interest in using AI/ML to protect the data centre (especially autonomic computing) and I have worked on a variety of projects to that end, including work to detect atacks on the UK's WHOIS infrastructure.

Other interests include smart jewellery with an emphasis on practicality and aethetics, pedagogy of computer science, equality and diversity in computer science, and religion and IT
