Gilberto Atondo Siu

PhD student in Computer Science, University of Cambridge

I am a PhD student at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Dr Alice Hutchings.

I work in the Cambridge Cybercrime Centre and my research is focused on applications of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing to Cybercrime.

My MPhil Research Project at the University of Cambridge was about automated NLP approaches for currency exchange analysis in underground forums.

At the moment, I am analysing the impact of COVID-19 in the proliferation and evolution of investment fraud and financial scams.
