Research

Web, Cybersafety, Internet Data Science

Interests

I am a Senior Lecturer at Queen Mary University of London, and a Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute. My research is in the area of Internet Data Science, with an increasing focus on the web, social computing and cybersafety: details of my publications can be found here. Over the last 4 years, I have been awarded almost £2 million in research funding and have received coverage from news outlets such as MIT Tech Review, Washington Post, Slashdot, BBC, The Times, Daily Mail, Wired, Science Daily, Ars Technica, The Independent, Business Insider and The Register. I also serve as a reviewer and program committee member for a number of prominent conferences/journals such as IEEE/ACM ToN, IEEE JSAC, IEEE TPDS, ACM CoNEXT, IEEE ICDCS and ICWSM. I recently arranged ACM IMC and ACM DEV, which were hosted at Queen Mary, and recieved the Outstanding Reviewer Award thrice at ICWSM (2016, 2018, 2019). My work has recevied the Honourable Mention Award at the Web Conference 2018 (best paper in track); the Best Presentation Award at INFOCOM'18; and the Best Paper Award at eCrime'19.
