About me

I'm Jack Hughes, a PhD student supervised by Alice Hutchings in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at the University of Cambridge.

My research interests are within the intersection of cybersecurity, cybercrime, and interpretable machine learning. My PhD work is based around analysis techniques for cybercrime pathways within underground discussion platforms.

Previously, I completed my MPhil under Alice Hutchings, looking at identifying characteristics of potential key actor groups on underground gaming forums, who may benefit most from interventions.

My email address is Jack . Hughes @ cl . cam . ac . uk
