Responsible (Research and) Innovation

Social and ethical implications of ICT

Human aspects of information security

Socio-Technical Systems in ICT


I am researching Responsible Innovation as a project in the Networked Quantum Information Technologies (NQIT) Hub, part of a major UK government investment in quantum technologies.

I joined the Human Centred Computing theme in Computer Science in March 2015 from European research projects in Cloud computing and energy efficiency with 451 Research, a global research and advisory firm.

Prior to that, I was a researcher in the Institute for the Study of Science Technology and Innovation at the University of Edinburgh, where I worked on European Commission research project MyFIRE: Multidisciplinary networking of research communities in FIRE, a socio-economic overview of EC-funded Future Internet testbeds.

I did my PhD at University College London: "Public Policy, Technology and Lived Experience: Three Case Studies of Technology in Support of Urban Transport Policies in London" and later took part in projects as a post-doctoral researcher in the The Information Security Research Group, specialising in human aspects of information security.

Before that I did an MSc in New Media, Information and Society at the London School of Economics.

I have over thirty years' experience of the IT industry, including technical co-ordinator with GreenNet, the Internet Service Provider for the environment, gender equality and human rights, and as a Unix system administrator with Internet companies.‚Äč
