EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellow
- Email: email@example.com
I am the EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellow in the School of Computing Science. I passed my PhD Viva in March 2017 for a Thesis entitled Permissible Pervasive Computing.
My research interests lie in the intersection of ubiquitous/wearable computing and human rights. This involves the development (and analysis) of technical systems which challenge the existing status quo in this space, whilst also accounting for the surrounding legal context.
