Dr Xiaohua (Anna) Feng, Senior Lecturer in Computer Science and Technology, University of Bedfordshire
There is an increased public awareness and media coverage of Cyber- Bullying/Stalking. It is seen as a growing problem and has led to concerns in particular for the on-line safety for children and vulnerable adults. Currently there is little academic research into the prevalence, motivations, impacts and risk assessment which will lead to effective preventions of and responses to Cyberstalking. This has led to the creation of The National Centre for Cyberstalking Research at the University of Bedfordshire. It aims to provide high quality research to help, understand and tackle the problem. The Centre is interdisciplinary in nature and draws upon the expertise of people working in different fields including technology, psychology, sociology and law. Dr Feng will discuss the domain issues and how the work of the Centre is addressing them.
