I am an EPSRC Research Fellow at the Dept. Computer Science & Technology (Computer Laboratory), University of Cambridge.
My research concerns the technical and legal aspects of systems. My core interests span areas including security, privacy, management and audit, typically in the context of cloud and distributed environments (Internet of Things).
I am also interested tech-enabled art and interactive experiences.
I'm building the Compliant and Accountable Systems research group to work towards better aligning technology with legal concerns, and vice-versa. Taking an interdisciplinary (tech-legal) approach, we tackle issues of governance, control, agency, accountability and trust regarding emerging technology. I also co-chair the Cambridge Trust & Technology Initiative, which drives research exploring the dynamics of trust and distrust in relation to internet technologies, society and power.
I am active in tech-policy discussions, which has me involved various advisory and outreach initiatives.
I undertook my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Cambridge, and have previously studied some law.
I have worked for large and small IT service companies, ran a medical IT startup, and provide consulting services. Much of my commercial experience concerned health and judicial applications, areas with strong governance requirements.
I am originally from Australia, which is far, far away from Cambridge. Thankfully I enjoy travel!
