Cyber Security Skills Lead at Cardiff Centre for Cyber Security Research

Cardiff University


I am a Lecturer at the School of Computer Science & Informatics at Cardiff University. I worked as a lead researcher on the project “Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems Cyber Security Lifecycle (SCADA-CSL)” funded by Airbus Endeavr Wales, where I developed a novel SCADA Cyber Security, Safety and Risk (SCADA CSSR) graphical extension for BPMN 2.0 and a configurable dependency model of a SCADA system. In 2020-2021, I led an NCSC and RISCS funded project about cyber-security decision-making by SMEs. In 2021, I was awarded an EPSRC grant for developing a framework for risk-informed and metrics-enriched cybersecurity playbooks for enhancing CNI resilience. I am a cyber skills lead at the School and am interested in cybersecurity education from primary school up to professional development level. I am passionate about equality and diversity in cybersecurity.
