I research privacy and data protection for big data generated by smart city technologies. In particular, my research focuses on architecture for automated privacy rights management in a smart city data hub (http://www.mksmart.org). As my research interests lay in both the problem and solution spaces, I aim to translate problem knowledge into innovative designs and engineer practical solutions. From a software engineering perspective, I look at how software engineers might be benefited in exploiting the use of privacy enhancing technologies in their system design.

As an Associate Lecturer at The Open University I tutor an undergraduate module in Computer Science - 'M269: Algorithms, data structures and computability'.

Before completing a PhD in Software Engineering from the OU in 2013, I worked in the industry as a Software Engineer / Systems Analyst for 10 years.
