I joined Big Brother Watch as Director in January 2017. Previously, I was Senior Advocacy Officer at Liberty, where I led a programme on Technology and Human Rights. Prior to this, I worked for Edward Snowden’s official defence fund, the Courage Foundation.
I am the co-author of Information Security for Journalists, a handbook for the Centre for Investigative Journalism, first published July 2014. This book is free to download and periodically revised. You can find the latest edition here.
I studied Politics and Psychology at the University of Cambridge, conducting the first experimental research into the reversal of system justification, using WikiLeaks as a stimulus.
I love big dogs and black cats and volunteer at a London rehoming centre.
