I am a computing professor at the University of Birmingham and researcher at Talis Ltd and work on most things that connect people and computers. However, I started off (years ago) as a mathematician and this is still my academic first love!

Although I’ve spent a good part of my life in England I am actually a Welshman and have all the nationalism of an ex-pat. However, I now live on Tiree, a little island off the west coast of Scotland. If you want to come to share the scenery, I run a twice yearly event, Tiree Tech Wave, for making and talking about technology.
