Maria is a Lecturer in Cyberpsychology. She teaches and conducts research in areas such as online safety and prevention, decision-making, cybercrime and cybersecurity.
The application of traditional theories of psychology in studying cybercrime is something I find fascinating and this research is also contributing to the emerging discipline of cyberpsychology. Within my current role at the University of Cambridge Cybercrime Centre, my research focuses on the human factor in cybercrime. More specifically, I work on the profiling of cybercriminals, the cybercrime ecosystem and how the Internet supports criminal behavior online.15 November 2022
