Technology is an Accelerator of Radicalisation – Not the Cause

My research is interdisciplinary, combining criminology, history, and computer science to explore the ways in which extremists utilise technology for recruitment and radicalisation, whilst giving equal weight to the subcultural elements of the users of this technology. In addition, I examine the various ways history is being manipulated and weaponised to fuel contemporary extremist narratives. I have taught widely in the areas of criminology, security theory, politics and international relations, and terrorism studies. Throughout the past few years I have advised the UK government, military, United Nations, the police, and social media companies as to the risks posed by extremists operating online. In addition to extremists’ use of technology to recruit and radicalise, my expertise lies in analysing the relationship existing between terrorism and climate change.
