researcher and educator in politics, security and technology
I speak, write and teach on a range of topics concerning politics, security and technology, especially cybersecurity (cyber threats to individuals, organizations and states, capacity building, resilience, and expertise) and information flows (disinformation, leaks, and new media). A lot of my research focuses on the Middle East, and I spend much of my time in the region. I try to think about security and technology broadly, including human rights, gender and intersectional issues. I do talks and media interviews, and if you would like to contact me please use the website form.
Oxford, UK: In 2018, I completed a DPhil in International Relations at the University of Oxford, on cybersecurity in Egypt and the Gulf states (here), and remain part of the University of Oxford's Centre for Technology and Global Affairs. Before my doctoral studies, I completed an MSc at Birkbeck College, University of London, and a BA at the University of Cambridge.
