Dr. Patrick Murphy

Dr. Patrick Murphy is a Research Associate working on the EU FP7 funded project Evaluation and Certification Schemes for Security Products (CRISP). CRISP aims to enhance existing security evaluation and certification schemes by offering an innovative evaluation methodology that integrates security, trust, efficiency and freedom infringement assessment dimensions. After analysing existing practices, CRISP aims to develop a multi-dimensional certification scheme that will address the gaps in current certification scenarios and meet the recommendations of the European Commission, particularly the need to include human factors in the evaluation of security products and services.

Patrick successfully defended his PhD thesis in December 2011 undertaken in the Department of Geography, Durham University. His thesis, titled ‘Securing the Everyday City: The Emerging Geographies of Counter-Terrorism’, explored the presence of counter-terror security within urban space and how these processes of securing are encountered and experienced as they become part of the everyday life of cities. Patrick's research continues to be concerned with how forms of security are imbricated into the spaces and happenings of urban life so that they are lived, in the double sense of the life of security and life as secured.

Prior to joining the Centre for Technology and Society at the Technical University of Berlin, Patrick worked in the Department of Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London on the EU FP7 funded Automatic Data Relevancy Discrimination for a Privacy Sensitive Video Surveillance (ADDPRIV) project. He was also a member of the MUSE: Sensory Enigmas of Contemporary Urban Mobilities project.
