Research interests

Humans are evident in all cyber physical systems, from their inception to usage - and at every point in a system`s lifecycle, decisions are being made and acted upon.  My personal area of interest lies in the potential risks to both human safety and systems availability that arise from information based decision processes. 

My research looks to how these cyber security risks might be identified and mitigated through the use of human factors & ergonomics knowledge and methodology from other, mature, safety-aware industries.  Together, these practices form the basis for security ergonomics - a set of design principles for building safe and secure cyber physical systems.   Within this field my current research space looks to security cultures and the impact these have upon organisations, people and practice.
