My main interest is in exploring and understanding technology, and its implications for security and privacy.
At work I've developed tools that use ontologies to let people draw pictures that capture knowledge in a format that machines can reason over. I've explored how consent for data use could be revoked and how companies could show privacy compliance standards. I've briefed people from various levels of industry on how to detect, deter and disrupt Command and Control channels from malware and advanced persistent threats. I've designed and built systems for using Hadoop to do data processing to provide better situational awareness as part of Computer Network Defence. I always try to focus on how people could do security better.
To go with all of that computer geekery, I also enjoy wargames, miniatures and tabletop games, and the odd spot of photography.
As a child of the Internet, I've got accounts in all sorts of places.
