I'm a Senior Research Associate and Affiliated Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science and Technology (Computer Laboratory) at the University of Cambridge, where I'm part of the Compliant and Accountable Systems research group. I'm a member of the Microsoft Cloud Computing Research Centre, an affiliate of the Minderoo Centre for Technology and Democracy, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. Though I work in a computer science department, I hold a PhD in Law from Queen’s University, Belfast and my background more broadly is in law.
I'm generally interested in critical interdisciplinary work on questions of power, political economy, and the law around digital technologies, online platforms, and automation. For my PhD, I studied the use of machine learning in commercial and state internet surveillance, and the impact of these related forms of surveillance on people and society.
