We develop new information technologies and their use in industry and commerce. We focus on ways in which this technology can inform areas like secure systems, risk management, cyber security and social media analysis.


Our group explores information technologies, and their use in industry and commerce. We work in industry sectors including:

  • ecology
  • health
  • media
  • e-government
  • oil and gas exploration
  • marine systems
  • education
  • transport

We collaborate with other organisations on funded research projects, through directly-funded contract research and development and through specialist consultancy.

This covers work in areas like:

  • secure systems
  • risk management
  • cyber security
  • crisis management
  • social media analysis
  • social behaviour in complex human-machine networks
