I am an anthropologist by training with ongoing research interest in distributed and situated cognition and learning. I have held academic positions in Australia and overseas, and have worked in the Australian Public service in various analytic, managerial and policy roles in the areas of intelligence and security. I joined the Department of Security Studies and Criminology in 2018 as a lecturer in Intelligence Studies and Cyber Security.
My overall aim is to straddle the divide between applied and theoretical research.
I have conducted extensive research in the areas of intelligence studies and the anthropology of cognition and learning.
My current research focuses on intelligence and cyber intelligence, and on the organisational and technological dynamics of decision making in adversarial situations. I am particularly interested in how adversaries can act to degrade their opponents’ perception of reality and decision making, and how intelligence-driven decision making and the emerging cyber domain may combine to allow underdogs to confront more powerful adversaries.
More generally, I am interested in contemporary adversarial intelligence, and the way the emerging digital revolution affects the busienss of intelligence.
I teach various courses in intelligence studies covering different aspects of intelligence theory and practice. These include courses in cyber security intelligence and theory and practice of intelligence.
