James is a senior researcher in PaCT Lab, Northumbria University. His previous research focused on improving user authentication for older users, both by repurposing existing graphical authentication systems and by evaluating novel ones. He has also explored mobile gesture-based authentication generally, and novel mobile messaging applications to reduce snooping. More recently, he has developed tools and methodologies for uncovering and understanding employees' mental models of security threats with the aim of improving training programmes and/or organisational policies, as well as practical means for improving users' protection against these security threats (e.g. phishing).
James has co-organised workshops at CHI, SOUPS, and BritishHCI.
Emily is a research associate within the Information, Decisions an Operations Group at the University of Bath.

Chiara is a PhD student at the University of Kent. Her research focuses on the user’s interaction with mobile biometric platforms to maximise the performance of the system and the user’s acceptance and experience.
Lynne is best known for her work on usable security, particularly biometrics and authentication. Her research interests are varied and she is currently involved in research exploring the role of communication technology in the lives of older adults to facilitate mobility and inclusion, while valuing privacy. Lynne is currently working with the university of the third age, to train older adults to be researchers and get involved with identifying the topics they want to research. Lynne has organised workshops at a number of venues including, SOUPS, CHI and British HCI.
