I am an early career researcher. I have been conducting research in Cyber Security since 2011, mainly focusing on topics such as human factors in security; cybercrime; and cyber security measures in organisational settings. I have completed a PhD in Cyber Security in 2016 (National University of Ireland Galway), where I investigated how various factors affect employee security behaviour in organisations. I I worked at the University of Leeds as a Research Fellow in 2016-2019, focusing on topics such as ransomware; cybercrime in the cloud; and cryptocurrencies. After that (2019-2020) I worked with the University College London where I continued my research on ransomware.
