Personal profile

Biography

Annabelle McIver trained as a mathematician at Cambridge and Oxford Universities. Her research uses mathematics to analyse security flaws in computer systems.


Annabelle has had a number of international visiting positions and fellowships at institutions such as MIT (USA), Birmingham (UK),  LRI and INRIA (France), ETH Zurich, and was a Junior Research Fellow in Mathematics at St Hilda's College, Oxford. She is a member of the Programming Methodology technical working group of the International Federation of Information Processing. She was (co-) recipient of th 2014 Best Cybersecurity Research Paper awarded by the US National Security Agency.
