I am a Reader in Security and Privacy Engineering in the Information Security Group of the Computer Science department at University College London. I research computer security, privacy, and in particular anonymous communications, traffic analysis, statistical inference, smart metering and peer-to-peer security. You can see my full CV and a a short bio.

Before joining UCL I was a researcher at Microsoft Research Cambridge from 2007 to 2013. Between 2005 and 2007 I was a post-doctoral visiting fellow at Prof. Bart Preneel's COSIC group at K.U.Leuven, Belgium. With Claudia Diaz we were coordinating the COSIC Privacy Group. Until 2005 I was a research assistant in the Security Group, of the Computer Laboratory of the University of Cambridge, working on anonymous communications, peer-to-peer networks and censorship resistance where I got my Ph.D under the supervision of Prof. Ross J. Anderson. I received my B.A. (Hons) in Computer Science from Queens' College.
