My primary research interest is in developing spatial computer models of social phenomena and my focus, in particular, has been on crime simulation.
I am a first year PhD student at the Jill Dando Institute for Security and Crime Science at University College London
GIS enthusiast and ABM practitioner
Social Network Analysis
I obtained my undergraduate degree in Mathematics at Worcester College, Oxford University. I then worked for 9 years for the UK government before returning to university to study for a MSc and PhD at UCL. On leaving UCL I started working in the insurance industry, where I develop models of cyber catastrophe events.
Key research interests are how to build models of complex human behaviour.
My PhD research project was focussed on building a model of the process by which people develop the propensity to commit acts of crime or terrorism, from which came a computer simulation of the radicalisation process.
My current research interest is on creating models of cyber threats.
