Biography

I am currently studying Computer Science, and I love exploring the social impacts of new technologies, particularly within the field of cyber security. I'd love to be able to work in the field to deal with cyber threats or advise others on the ethical uses of technology. While I'm not keeping up-to-date on online frauds and scams, I enjoy playing tabletop games with my friends and reading.

Interests & Passions

  • Cyberwarfare
  • Scams and frauds
  • Attention economy
  • State surveillance
  • Ethical use of AI

"When I was 8 I wanted to grow up and be a scientist! I loved the idea of working with the most cutting-edge material possible and developing or discovering things no one had ever thought of before."
