Katelyn’s current research focuses on cyber financial crime assemblage and how users and misusers shape technologies and policies. She is interested in how data analytics and artificial intelligence improve cybercrime management practices, and how financial institutions respond to cybercriminal activities at both product design and institutional policy levels. Katelyn’s research strives to increase transparency and efficiency in managing cyber financial crime in Canada, and she hopes her work can contribute to cybercrime management strategies that will help build and rebuild consumer trust and confidence.
