Overview and Interests

I studied Computer Engineering at City University and am a Fellow of the IET. I’m interested in a broad set of computer science topics including large connected systems, emergent systems and bottom-up “neuron-centric” models of intelligence.

I was a visitor at the Lab’s DTG group in 2013, and during this time started the company 1248 to focus on horizontalisation of the Internet of Things. With funding from the UK’s Technology Strategy Board we’re working with around 40 other companies and academic groups to create a thin interoperability layer to try to unify today’s horizontal IoT silos, enabling the IoT to take off.

Other companies I founded include Antenova and AlertMe. My latest talks & views are on my personal home page, including the talk I gave when joining the Lab.
