I have a PhD from the Informatics Department at the University of Sussex. I hold an MSc in Music Technology, obtained from City University in 2004, as well as an MSc in Architecture, Advanced Environmental and Energy Studies, which I received in 2014 from the Centre for Alternative Technology. My BSc, from North London University (now London Metropolitan), was in Computer Science, which I received in 1998. I have been a UNIX System Administrator, an Audio Programmer in Games, a freelance Programmer, and a Web Developer. My current interest is blockchains and the social impact of information technology.
