I joined the Open University, Department of Computing, Faculty of Maths, Computing and Technology as a post-doctoral research fellow. As a post doctoral fellow, I will be working on the EPSRC funded "Privacy Dynamics" Project that investigates the aspects of privacy dynamics in collaboration with the Imperial College and the Exeter University. The Open University aims to contribute to Software Engineering for Privacy, by building on the social psychology results from the Exeter University, and "plugging in" or adapting the machine learning capabilities resulting from the Imperial College.
