Personal profile

'Cybersecurity' is a contested entity and I am currently researching the controversies and politics involved in defining 'cybersecurity' and cyberspace in the United States. I am undertaking an interdisciplinary research project between politics and sociology, using the idea of "boundary work" as a way to trace the political processes at work in bounding cyberspace and cybersecurity, drawing on IR, security studies, STS and the philosophy of technology amongst others.

Before commencing my PhD at the SWDTC, I undertook an MRes in Security, Conflict and Justice in which I investigated the UK government's discourse on cybersecurity through an analysis of the various National Security Strategy and Cybersecurity Strategy documents. Before that, I completed an MSc in International Security at the University of Bristol which culminated in a research project that brought together actor-network theory thinking and an analysis of the role of private antivirus companies in the construction of public reports around the Stuxnet virus.

In previous incarnations I have variously been an undergraduate archaeology student at UCL while getting a degree in Egyptian Archaeology, a quality adminstrator for the double glazing industry and also for the cardboard packaging industry, whilst currently moonlighting as a volunteer rider for the Bristol Freewheelers EVS.
