Dr Joss Wright

Dr Joss Wright gained his PhD in Computer Science at the University of York, where his work focused on the description and analysis of anonymous communication mechanisms. Following this, he spent time at the University of Siegen in Germany examining security and privacy issues in cloud computing.

Joss’s interests lie in the area of anonymous and censorship-resistant communications, cryptographic fundamentals and in the wider field of privacy enhancing technologies, their applications and their implications.

At the OII, Joss is working on the “Being There” project, which looks at privacy in public spaces, and a Google-funded project analysing Internet censorship.
