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.
