I currently work as a Research Manager for Hewlett Packard Enterprise, based in Bristol, United Kingdom. I manage a team who are researching new approaches to system management.
I have a PhD in Computer Science, and my past research interests have included peer-to-peer networks, data mining, social network analysis, recommender systems and big data distributed data processing frameworks such as Hadoop.
In my spare time I enjoy travelling in the UK and around the world, visiting theme parks and riding rollercoasters – possibly an unusual hobby, but it makes for an adrenaline-filled life!
Security for The Machine: by design

The Machine – a vision for the future of computing
In this talk we’ll lift the lid on The Machine, a research project that is seeking to reinvent the model of computing which has stood unchallenged for sixty years. The Machine will enable a quantum leap in performance and efficiency, leaving behind half a century of compromises and inefficiencies.
