Software Developer, Researcher, Writer

In October 2019 I began studying Software Development and Security at University College Cork under Dr. Klaas-Jan Stol and Prof. Utz Roedig. My research is funded by SFI and industry via the ADVANCE program.

It’s fascinating. After over twenty years in software development I’m intrigued to see how we developers are regarded by academia. My supervisors are fantastic and UCC is a very supportive environment. They really worked at keeping us connected during Covid.

Let me know if you have any software security anecdotes…or horror stories! My email address is “ita” at …this website. Please put ‘security’ in the title.

I only send out an email when I publish something new, have a big event coming up, or publish in a new format. So if you sign up to my mailing list you might get one or two mails close together occasionally, but then nothing for months.

I take my readers' privacy very seriously, and will never pass on your email address - Ita
