Dr Diana Miranda
Lecturer in Criminology
University of Stirling
Dr Diana Miranda is currently a Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Stirling. Diana’s research interests focus on emerging biometric and data driven technologies, particularly on their impacts in the Criminal Justice System. From visual surveillance technologies (such as body-worn cameras or facial recognition), to identification technologies (such as fingerprinting and DNA), and AI tools used to detect emotional states.
Her research projects explore how surveillance impacts notions of identity through processes of technologically mediated suspicion: in predictive policing and criminal investigation, security of prisons and smart cities. Before Stirling and SCCJR, Diana worked in different UK HE institutions (Northumbria, Keele, OU and Birkbeck) and also in Spain (Girona) and Portugal (Minho, Porto and Coimbra).
