Steve is supporting research and development efforts across Trilateral’s STRIAD Solutions including efforts in our Horizon 2020 projects.
Following a career in the British Army – now a Reservist – and 3 years working for IBM with the UK Police, he is currently pursuing his PhD at the University of Southampton. Steve is primarily interested in the use of technology to promote Human Security, especially in relation to slavery.
His PhD research is in using Natural Language Processing to analyse hostile narrative using qualitative methods. The research seeks to reveal the structures of narrative used to legitimise harm. This research builds upon an MA in Conflict, Security and Development at Kings College London and an MSc in Web Science at Southampton University. It also draws upon operational experience with the Army and his project work with UK Police.
