My doctoral research centres on emerging threats to journalists from new internet-connected technologies, which seems natural given that I’ve always been fascinated by both investigations and sci-fi scenarios. My on-going DPhil in Cyber Security here, at Oxford, follows an MA in Science and International Security from King’s College London, a certification from SciencesPo, Paris, and a BA(Hons) in Politics and International Relations from the University of Nottingham. Alongside these academic experiences, I have worked in various roles, such as that of an intelligence analyst on Channel 4’s 'Hunted' and 'Celebrity Hunted', and the conference and research analyst for the Association of International Broadcasting, both of which have particularly influenced the trajectory of my studies. This DPhil project combines theoretical understandings of computer science, cyber security, law, and journalism training with policy-oriented practical solutions, developed through both qualitative and quantitative methods. The objective is to create a framework for news organisations in democratic countries to consider for protection of their staff and sources against Internet of Things threats.
