She is an award-winning investigative film maker, a published editor and author.

She has taught Internet research skills, including investigative analysis of the dark web to government officials, intelligence, and members of the law enforcement community across the globe.
Dr. Corb has acted in the capacity of Internet Specialist, Open-Source Intelligence Operations Specialist to various law enforcement agencies and intelligence services, and Consultant to the global law enforcement and intelligence community since 2002.
