Through the Looking Glass: Exploring the Relationship Between Nonverbal and Verbal Behaviour on Rapport and Dyadic Cooperation

Lynn Weiher
Poster presented at the 2017 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
This research programme wishes to explore the relationship between verbal and nonverbal behaviour, rapport, and dyadic cooperation. Although researchers have long recognised the complementary roles that verbal and nonverbal behaviour play in interaction, we know little about how verbal and nonverbal mimicry co-occur, nor how these relate to the established outcomes of rapport (internal perception) or cooperation (external behaviour).
In this study, dyads engage in short interview-style...

Searching for High Density Material in Cargo Containers Using Gravity Gradiometry

David Leahy
Poster presented at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Imaging cargo containers at ports in this country is an important task, especially if they are being checked for possible fissile material. Some detection methods cannot be used as they are too destructive. A possible alternative is the use of gravity gradiometry - a non-destructive sensing technique which can provide better resolution than straightforward gravity readings, with the trade-off being less penetration power. The resulting inverse...

Ensuring Cyber-Physical Security in the Digital Built Environment

Emma Boakes
Poster presented at the 2018 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Cyberspace and physical space are increasingly enmeshed, and the need to secure the digital-built environment and its assets has given rise to the concept of cyber-physical security. Cyber-physical security concerns vulnerabilities in cyber security that can be exploited to target physical security, and vice versa. For example, insecure transmission of architectural designs can give attackers the ability to understand physical weaknesses in a building, and outsourcing...
