Bio

Shane is a Lecturer in Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of the West of Scotland. His research explores the social and cultural dimensions of everyday cybersecurity practices.

He was recently awarded a Scottish Justice Fellowship (2018-19). The fellowship is aimed at supporting researchers to transform their thesis into formats and projects that can directly influence policy and practice. The fellowship is supported by The Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research, The Scottish Institute for Policing Research, and the Scottish Government.

As a PhD Candidate in Criminology at the University of Edinburgh, Shane’s doctoral project used qualitative methods to explore public sensibilities towards, and experiences of cybercrime and cybersecurity. He argues that feelings towards cybercrime and people’s security responses need to be understood in the context of other social, cultural and economic values and demands of everyday life.
