Mark Quinlan

PhD candidate in Cyber Security at Oxford University

7-17 February 2023

Mark Quinlan is a PhD candidate in Cyber Security at Oxford University. A multi-disciplinary researcher whose interests include human factors of cyber security and wider applied computer science, his current interests centre around the ways different actors conceptualise epistemic and phenomenological issues within cyberspace. He is now working on a project that investigates the dichotomy between the discrete risks hypothesised by cyber security experts, and the innate risk encountered by other actors in cyberspace.

Previously, Mark worked as a research associate for Cambridge University, where he focused on explainable Artificial Intelligence (xAI), as a consultant for BAE Systems on major technology projects for the British government, and as a software engineer on multiple private infrastructure projects. He holds an MSc in Business Information Systems from Royal Holloway University.
