Women in Tech

Claire is currently a Software Engineer II at the cyber-security company Rapid7, and a cryptocurrency & cybersecurity enthusiast. She recently completed an MSc in Cyber Security at QUB, passing with Distinction after completing her BEng Computer Science a year prior.

She has spent 5 years in leadership roles in the Belfast branch of the global not-for-profit organization Women Who Code, where she is currently a board appointed Global Ambassador, and she received a UK-wide TechWomen50 award for her diversity & inclusion work during this time.

She is the founder of the Google-sponsored Women Techmakers Belfast conference, which aims to highlight the work and achievements of local women in STEM, which has been running for 4 successful years now. She is a co-organizer of the BSides Belfast conference, and a keen speaker, writer and tech mentor.

She has spoken at many conferences and events, most notably AppSec EU, the CSIT Global Cyber Security Summit and the international “Women In Leadership In a Changing World” sponsored by the University of Massachusetts Lowell and Queen’s University Belfast.

In her (rare) moments of free time, she enjoys cooking, singing, drinking tea and playing “Dungeons & Dragons” with friends.”
