Dr AM Marshall



My main areas of interest are around online crime and criminal activity and how technology supports them. I have a strong interest in social media platforms, including virtual worlds and federated systems. I'm also interested in concepts and understanding of trust in relation to digital data as evidence.

Lecturing is mostly in the CyberSecurity area and I developed modules for the Computer Science with Cybersecurity online programme.


Currently supervising work on online money laundering. Keen to talk to prospective PhD students about crime & technology topics.

As a possible ADHDer myself, I'm looking at innovative ways of helping neurodivergent students to achieve their full potential.


Recent papers include work on MetaVerse as a criminal platform, regulation and standards for digital forensics, obfuscated and encrypted mobile phones used for criminal purposes.

I'm also a regular contributor to Digital Forensics Magazine
and Absolute Lotus Magazine , and an Associate Editor for FSI:Digital Investigation.

My ResearchGate publication archive contains copies of everything that I'm permitted to share, or pointers to where it can be found.

My book on digital forensics is a little out of date, but if you really want a copy and there's the work on Digital Crime that I also contributed to

My PhD by publication tome titled Digital Evidence Regulation - an assessment of underlying issues in England and Wales is available to download.
