My research revolves around the investigation of network and system support for mobile, embedded and ubiquitous computing.

I typically employ an experimental methodology in my research. Through the prototyping of novel and emerging applications, I work to discover new requirements, architectures, protocols and techniques for future networks and systems. I find adopting such a pragmatic and experimental approach not only provides accurate research results and insights, but also enables more direct dissemination of research results into both the academic and industrial research communities. As an example of this, previous work I undertook around the Mobile IPv6 protocol was later adopted by Microsoft and integrated in their Windows XP and CE operating systems, and have developed patented and licensed technology for the creation of emergent displays.
