I am a Reader in the University of Cambridge Department of Computer Science and Technology working in the Digital Technology Group. I am also the Hassabis Fellow in Computer Science and Director of Studies in Computer Science at Queens' College.
Want to record how you use your Android phone? Install our free Device Analyzer project and contribute to research at the same time.
My current research activity focuses on programming and software engineering:
I have previously worked on understanding the power consumption of smart phones, particularly Android devices (more detail), and the energy consumption and energy efficiency of computing infrastructure (more detail)
These themes 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].
I organise the DTG weekly seminar series. Upcoming talks are advertised on the DTG list at talks.cam.
Recent programme committees/reviewing: ACM Computing Surveys, MASCOTS 2012, SIGMETRICS 2012, Buildsys 2011, AFRICOMM 2011, MASCOTS 2011 (PC Chair), Sustalnet 2011, PerCom 2011 (PhD programme)
I am a Fellow in Computer Science at Queens'. We admit between 6 and 8 undergraduates a year. In addition to core teaching I organise a variety of other activities for Queens' Computer Scientists. You can find out more at the Queens' College Computer Science blog.
Lecturing: Currently I teach Object Oriented Programming for Part 1A of the CS Tripos; and Further Java and Prolog for Part 1B of the CS Tripos
Previous lecturing: I taught Programming for Mobiles for the MPhil in Advanced Computer Science from 2010-2013.
