My bio:

Dr Leonie Maria Tanczer is Lecturer in International Security and Emerging Technologies at University College London and has a research interest on the intersection of technology, security, and gender. She is researching and publishing on a wide array of Internet-related topics ranging from online sexism to censorship and surveillance.

Prior to her lectureship appointment, she was Postdoctoral Research Associate for the EPSRC-funded PETRAS Internet of Things (IoT) Research Hub, where she is part of the "Standards, Governance and Policy" research stream. She holds a PhD from the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics at Queen's University Belfast (QUB). Her thesis included supervision from both social sciences and engineering (ECIT) and focused on the (in)securitisation of hacking and hacktivism. She studied Political Science (B.A.) at the University Vienna and University of Limerick (Republic of Ireland) and Political Psychology (MSc.) at the Queen’s University Belfast.

Dr Tanczer is Principal Investigator of the "Gender and IoT" research project (G-IoT) which examines the impact of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies on gender-based domestic violence and abuse. In 2015, she was Fellow at the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society in Berlin.
