I completed my PhD in 2016 with the Security Group at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. I was supervised by Professor Ross Anderson and funded by Microsoft Research as a recipient of the Dorothy Hodgkin Postgraduate Award.
My interests lie in the area of applying machine learning techniques to computer security problems. I have applied these techniques to study the privacy implications of published social network data and the resulting de-anonymization of individuals. My PhD thesis improves and systemises de-anonymization of social networks by replacing heuristics-based techniques with machine learning models. My current work investigates the application of machine learning techniques to malware and botnet analysis with statistical confidence.
