Her current research portfolio includes developing mathematical models for calculating Cyber-Value-at-Risk for an organisation, threat modelling and intrusion detection including insiders, visual analytics for understanding and communicating cyber security postures, logics for predicting risk propagation, resilience strategies, privacy vulnerability, threats to distributed ledgers, and understanding the nature of cyber-harm. She also researches what constitutes cyber security capacity for a nation, and how to deliver it, working with international organisations, nations, practitioners and academics around the world.
She is Principal Investigator on the AXIS Insurance Company-sponsored project ‘Analysing Cyber Value-at-Risk’ focused on developing a method for predicting the range of potential losses arising from cyber-attacks taking account of risk control practices.
