I am interested in recruiting a new PhD student to start in October 2013. We have a unique opportunity to work with an existing 3G pico-/femto-cell platform and to extend it for use as a research test-bed. Candidates should be excellent programmers (the existing platform is written in C++). An interest in mobile communications networks will be vital. Please contact me by email in the first instance.
My research activity covers a range of different areas:
These theme are derived from my work with Andy Hopper on the Computing for the Future of the Planet project in which we sought to identify Computer Science research questions in the context of global issues such as climate change, over-population, famine and desertification. A high level summary of the research themes is given in our brochure: [a4 version], [folding version]. Please see the main project pages for more information.
I organise the DTG weekly seminar series. Upcoming talks are advertised on the DTG list at talks.cam.
Recent programme committees: MASCOTS 2012, SIGMETRICS 2012, Buildsys 2011, AFRICOMM 2011, MASCOTS 2011 (PC Chair), Sustalnet 2011, PerCom 2011 (PhD programme)
Lecturing: Currently I teach Programming in Java for Part 1A of the CS Tripos; Further Java for Part 1B of the CS Tripos; and Programming for Mobiles for the MPhil in Advanced Computer Science.
Part II Projects: I generally supervise one or two Part II students final year projects. Students with project suggestions should contact me by email towards the end of Part 1B or at the beginning of Part II.
Summer projects: Cambridge undergraduates who are interested in taking part in software development projects over the summer vacation should feel free to contact me to find out more. This entails a 10 week period of (paid) full-time work based in the Computer Laboratory. The number of places on offer will vary depending upon resources. [more information]

PushOggDecoder is a Java library for extracting bit streams from an Ogg container.
Cantag is a machine vision framework written in C++ which provides various mechanisms for tracking two dimensional (2D) marker tags for barcode reading, 3D overlay or recovering position and pose.
Tinytag is a minimal 2D machine-vision barcode reader written in C without any floating point requirements and so is suitable for mobile phones and embedded platforms.
