Hello, I'm Brit.
I'm a Research Associate in Bristol Cyber Security Group [Computer Science Department at the University of Bristol] [staff page]. I am also an Expert Fellow within the SPRITE+ Network, which is interested in the challenges underpinning digital trust, identity, privacy, and security.
Research-wise, I am interested in online behavior and identity over time and across contexts [which is what I spent most of my PhD researching, which I completed in Sept 2019 - more info here]. I continue to use a variety of general statistical techniques, computational approaches to behavioral data/digital traces (e.g., machine learning, 'big' data analytics), and qualitative methods (e.g., thematic analysis, repertory grids). Additionally, I am associated with the Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (CREST) [link].
Additionally, I have interests in technology and society, where I have researched objective smartphone measurement (digital traces) with the PsychSensor Lab [Lancaster University]. This work has two key strands: improving behavioral measurement (psychometrics) and understanding the impact of technology on society.
I'm also an artist, a newbie photographer, and a writer.
I am fascinated by people; I am honoured to draw them, photograph them, write about them, and also research them.
I also enjoy sports, mostly power lifting and the occasional run, which makes me cry a little every time. I used to be a competitive compound archer - I still love the sport and practice when I can (not often on fire, like the lower left hand side image suggests...)
