In 2014 my book Security, Technology and Global Politics: Thinking with Virilio was published. The book examines the work of Paul Virilio, a French urbanist and philosopher who has written since the 1970s on war, security, cities and politics: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415576048/
My current research projects are:
Cyberwar/Cybersecurity. I am currently writing a book on new perspectives on cyberwar with Dr Daniel Prince.
'Event Management': new technologies and urban conflict in Dhaka. This project examines the new terrains of policing and protest in Bangladesh. The project is based primarily on interviews and fieldwork in Dhaka. The first fieldwork trip took place in January 2014.
21st Century Sieges. I am interested examining how sieges might be changing in the contemporary world - in terms of both their impact on civilians and in possible broader impacts on international relations and the global economy, examining the changing character of technology, economy and politics in the contemporary siege.
Ambiguous/Hybrid war. Iam interested in the changing character of geopolitics, war and international relations and the emergence of debates over 'ambiguous war' - with particular emphasis on the 'cyber' aspects of new types of conflict.
I am theme lead for Security Futures: Security Futures is an interdisciplinary space to examine the ethical, economic, legal and technical implications of new technologies - to identify new areas of research and to examine the optimism or fear in debates over emerging trends and moral panics about new technologies.
I am the lead editor in the Routledge book series, Conflict, Security and Technology: http://www.routledge.com/books/series/CST/
