Research

My Research Global Grand Challenges leading to 2050:
  • Border Security and Counterterrorism:
    • Using technology to deny, disturb, disrupt though the specific use of IMINT, GEOINT, OSINT and communication in public-private channels; including novel cryptography and steganography.
  • Sex and Human Trafficking:
    • Using technology to deny, disturb, disrupt, the illegal trade of humans for sex trafficking especially when related to child exploitation or abuse material.
  • People and Culture, and Cyber:
    • How to deal with the “human factor” in the information security problem. Including the study of policies, procedures and business environments.

My thesis is currently undergoing final checks before being submitted. In the meantime please review some of my research below. Alternatively, you can find my latest preprints on ResearchGate.
