I am interested in all aspects of mobile systems and security. But most particularly in the hard bits; ad hoc systems, pervasive/ambient computing environments, and how to secure these things. I also retain a quiet interest in multimedia.
I'm currently the PI of the MARS project, which is a collaborative project in conjunction with BT looking at building middleware components for trust management in pervasive environments, and the CoI on SEINIT, an EC Framework 6 Integrated Project looking at securing ambient networks. Finally, I will be PI and the project Technical Manager for RUNES, which is a largish Framework 6 IP, looking at networked embedded systems. RUNES is due to start on 1st September 2004.
My past projects include: 6WINIT an EC framework 5 project; some EPSRC funded projects (PIMMS, MOSQUITO, and MEDAL); and UKERNA funded projects such as ACOL and TITAN.
Aside from mobile systems and security, I have broad interests in teaching methodology particularly in future environments. Thus for example, a heavily revised second edition of The Digital University: Building a Learning Community was published in 2002.
