Rebekah is a PhD student in the School of Law within the interdisciplinary LINCS programme where her work is supervised by Professor John Morison in Law and Dr Sandra Scott-Haward from EEECS.   The successful  LINCS team also included Ciara McHugh, Claire Bevan, Olly Donnelly  from the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics  at Queen’s, (pictured here with  Dr Philip O’Kane, lecturer from Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) was their coach).

As part of their prize, the team will take part in a two day visit to the Cyber Defence Alliance offices in London.

LINCS at Queen’s University Belfast was established in 2015 with funding from the Leverhulme Trust and the Department for the Economy.  It builds on the existing interdisciplinary work between the Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) in the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EEECS) and the Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice. 

LINCS opens up new avenues of enquiry, allowing researchers to develop new collaborations and offer truly interdisciplinary support to its Leverhulme Doctoral Scholars.
