Research Interests

I am interested in post-PC computing, social networks and human behaviour. In particular I focus on:

  • Human behaviour in social networks and the extending role of smartphones;
  • Exploring social concepts such as co-operation for application in decentralised systems;
  • Wireless network design and deployment for smart cities and smart societies.

Earlier in my career I also published in discrete mathematics.

Current & Recent Research Projects

  • Gigamobile: Gigabit mobile networking using incentivised operator controlled device-to-device communications, EPSRC (via Queens University Belfast).
  • Using the smartphone to monitor mood states, Wellcome Trust.
