I will be giving one lecture as part of the Research Students Lecture series in Easter 2014.
I maintain the Android vulnerabilities website, information on the deployed version distribution of Android and help with the Device Analyzer project.
I am interested in Cryptography and have a page with notes including some DSA parameters.

I think reviewing papers is important and expect to review about 1 a month or as many as I have recieved, whichever is higher, I currently review fewer papers than that. I have reviewed papers for: Ubicomp 2014, ACM SIGCOMM Computer Communications Review (CCR), Journal of Internet Services and Applications (JISA) and Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia (MUM) 2013 amongst others.
