I am Professor of Digital Economy
in the School of Computer
and Director of Horizon
at the University of
After a PhD and lectureship in the Computer
at the University of Cambridge
I moved to a chair in
Department of Computer Science at the University of Glasgow
to Cambridge in July 1997, to help found the Cambridge Microsoft
Research facility, moving on to found the Intel lablet in
July 2002. A year working in Oregon for Intel from August 2005
Augst 2006, was an interesting cultural diversion and improved
skiing enormously, but alas during this sojourn the Cambridge
was shut. Before joining Nottingham I enjoyed the cut and
of two startups, XenSource (now Citrix) and Netronome
My research expertise is in ubiquitous computing, computer architecture,
networking, distributed systems and operating systems, while my
interdisciplinary interests include issues of ethics, identity,
privacy, information policy, legislation and economics within a digital
I am a Fellow of the British
and member of
, a computing
expert panel of the IET and BCS.
