Swindon, UK.

WHY I APPLIED TO THE SECURITY SCIENCE DTC

I like the idea of being able to study a broad range of security subjects in the first year. This will help in choosing a final PhD topic and provide a useful background to my research work.

RESEARCH INTERESTS

For my MRes project I will be researching the issues involved in developing a web search engine that cannot be censored or manipulated by any one company or government.

WHAT I DO WHEN I'M NOT STUDYING

I enjoy exploring London, going to the gym and reading.

WHAT KIND OF PARTNER ORGANISATION I'D LIKE TO WORK WITH AND WHAT I'D LIKE FROM THEM

For my MRes project I would be interested in hearing from organisations who are concerned about internet censorship.
