New staff to bolster capacity in cyber research and education


The Australian Centre for Cyber Security will soon welcome several new colleagues to our academic team.

The first of our appointments is Dr Jai Galliott. Dr Galliott has built a sterling teaching and research track record on the implications of emerging military technologies during his time at Macquarie University and, more recently, with his research at UNSW Kensington. He will add significant expertise across our academic, teaching and outreach pillars, especially in the areas of ethics in cyber space, cyber-enabled war and the human aspects of cyber security and privacy. He has authored/edited several books, including Military Robots: Mapping the Moral Landscape (Ashgate 2015) and Ethics and the Future of Spying: Technology, National Security and Intelligence Collection (Routledge 2016), and has given invited talks on cyber and robotics at prestigious venues including Oxford University and the United Nations in Geneva. Dr Galliott has also conducted research under contract to the Australian Army and the Defence Science and Technology Group.

This appointment, and those to follow, mark the next stage in the evolution of the Australian Centre for Cyber Security’s leading cyber research and education, and will help us meet the expectations of a growing student body and the Defence community, as well as our expanded research ambitions.
