Welcome to my website. I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. Please browse the links to find out more about me and what I do, or take a look at my papers. Or here are some ways to contact me.
Note: I am on sabbatical until September 2017 and checking e-mail less frequently than usual. Our University’s Office365 e-mail server seems to be unable to send autoreplies in any kind of sensible manner, so I apologise for not setting up an autoresponder. For admissions queries, try firstname.lastname@example.org, or for CRAWDAD, email@example.com. I am not teaching this year so any teaching queries should go to the relevant module coordinator.
