Andrew Dwyer

Andrew Dwyer is a doctoral candidate in Cyber Security at Oxford University, where he studies and questions the role of malware – commonly known as computational viruses and worms -  through its analysis, detection, and translation into international politics and how this intersects with malware’s ecologies. In his recently submitted doctoral thesis, Malware Ecologies: A Politics of Cybersecurity, he argues for a re-evaluation of the role of computational actors in the production and negotiation of security, and what this means for human-centred notions of weapons and warfare.

Previously, Andrew has been a visiting fellow at the German ‘Dynamics of Security’ collaborative research centre based between Philipps-Universität Marburg, Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen and the Herder Institute, Marburg. Andrew also worked at the management consultancy, Accenture and received his bachelor’s degree in Geography from Durham University. Visit him at
