Cyber Security & Privacy Research Network

People

The following people from across the University are affiliated with UoE CSPR.

This list is not updated frequently, it includes academic teaching members of staff only. There are many postdoctoral researchers, PhD and undergraduate students who are also members of the network and are on our mailing list.

If you'd like to be included on this list, please contact us with a note of your interests.

There are also connected research groups based in particular Schools, particularly Security and Privacy at UoE Informatics.
