Dr Yenni Tim has research interests in digitally-enabled phenomena and the unintended consequences of technology, and currently specialises in the fields of cybersecurity and data analytics. Yenni conducts qualitative and action design research in both organisational and societal contexts, and leads several research sandboxes in the Digital Enablement Research Network (DERN) – an incubator that champions high-impact research.
Her research on cybersecurity focuses on the human factors, from individuals’ awareness to organizational culture and education. She works with practitioners to create data-driven understanding and measures on cybersecurity awareness and behaviours. In her research, she also drives changes through behavioural interventions and the design of proofs-of-concepts, and develops metrics to assess the impact of such changes on relevant organizational outcomes.
Yenni also advocates for innovation in teaching. Among the technical courses she currently teaches, Yenni has designed, and is currently in charge of, an undergraduate cybersecurity course in the School of Information Systems and Technology Management which features sandbox modules that are co-designed with practitioners in the cybersecurity space.
