Professional biography

I am a Research Associate at The Open University, U.K.  I am a member of the Software Engineering And Design(SEAD)group. My current research interests lie at the intersections of  software engineering, software security discipline and working on human experiences with technology.  I believe that software and other technologies do not exist in isolation - its the way humans use them and how they are developed with the integration of knowledge from various disciplines that bring value to the end-product.
