Welcome to my website. I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. Once upon a time I was interested in economics, then various types of networks (wired, wireless, opportunistic, social), but these days I am mostly interested in technology law, ethics and privacy. 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.

  • I am always looking for good PhD students – see my research page for more. Funding is sometimes available, but this will typically be advertised through the School. Note that I do not have funding for overseas undergraduate internships – the numerous requests that I receive for these are ignored.
  • We hold regular SCONE (SCOttish Networking Event) meetings for anyone who is interested in networking and systems. Our next meeting is in Glasgow on 12 March. Sign up to the mailing list to find out more.
