Lecturers

Jon Crowcroft
Jon Crowcroft Jon Crowcroft has been the Marconi Professor of Communications Systems in the Computer Laboratory since October 2001. He worked on Internet support for multimedia communications for two decades. Three main topics of interest have been scalable multicast routing, practical approaches to traffic management, and the design of useful end-to-end protocols. Nowadays, he works on mobile, opportunistic, social, low energy, privacy preserving systems.

Cecilia Mascolo
Cecilia Mascolo Cecilia Mascolo is a Professor of Mobile Systems and a Fellow of Jesus College. Her research interests are in the areas of mobility modelling and mobile data analytics, mobile systems, ubiquitous computing and sensing.
(7)63640 | FN08
Andrew Moore
Andrew Moore In 2007, Andrew moved back to the Computer Laboratory. Interests have remained focused for the last 20 years on mechanism and applications of network monitoring. In recent years network traffic identification, specifically application identification, has been a primary interest. Recently networking interests have tended to applying novel techniques, mostly drawn from the machine-learning community, and applying these to problems in the network-traffic domain. Andrew also has a keen interest in small-system optical networks (optical networks on the 100, 10, 1 meter scale, e.g., optical PCI buses.

Richard Mortier
Richard Mortier Richard Mortier returned to the Computer Laboratory in 2015, having spent time at Sprint ATL, Microsoft Research, Vipadia Limited and Horizon Digital Economy Research at the University of Nottingham. He is now Reader in Computing & Human-Data Interaction, interested in the intersection of systems and HCI.
(3)34419 | FN17
Robert Watson
Robert Watson Robert is a Senior Lecturer in Systems, Security, and Architecture at the Computer Laboratory. He leads several cross-layer research projects spanning computer architecture, compilers, program analysis, program transformation, operating systems, local and distributed tracing, networking, and security. His current research looks at clean-slate CPU/software for security (the CHERI Instruction-Set Architecture), software analysis and transformation, and network-stack performance and tracing. Past work includes the Capsicum capability system and TrustedBSD MAC Framework, a widely deployed OS access-control extensibility framework (now found in FreeBSD, Mac OS X, Apple iOS, Junos, and other products). Robert has strong interests in open source, and is a member of the FreeBSD Foundation board of directors. He teaches the undergraduate Part I.B course Concurrent and Distributed Systems, the MPhil course Advanced Operating Systems, and co-teaches the MPhil courses Computer Security: Principles and Foundations and Computer Security: Current Research and Applications.
