I am a Senior Research Associate at the University of Bristol's Bristol Cyber Security Group where I work on human aspects of cybersecurity. I actively collaborate with the University of Haifa's Tech4Animals group, working on research into the design and use of technology for non-human users.
Previously I spent two years as an Institutional Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Haifa working on visualization in software engineering. Before that I spent a year at the Luxembourg Institute of Science & Technology in Belval, Luxembourg, working on human aspects of decision making in Enterprise Architecture.
My PhD in Information Systems from Radboud University was on human aspects of conceptual modeling, in particular how people conceptualize the underlying meta-concepts they reason with.
