I'm a Lecturer in Computer Science, working in the Web, AI and Society research group. I work in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research, with a particular interest in how individuals and groups interact with large-scale systems, how those systems are designed, and how things like values and agency play out within them.

I’m a director of several organisations, and I represent West End North as a councillor on Eastleigh Borough Council, where I’m also Chair of the Policy and Performance Scrutiny Panel. I've a particular interest in building pragmatic links between research and policy, particularly in local government.
