Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests include:

  • Accountability
  • Trust and Trustworthiness
  • Privacy and Data Protection

I am interested in how systems can be designed to operationalise human values, particularly privacy; how systems can be evaluated with respect to these values; and the relationship between these values and the trustworthiness of systems.  My research draws on insights from a range of disciplines, including Computer Science, Law and Ethics.
