Before joining the University of Otago, I worked as a senior research associate at the University of Cambridge, from where I was awarded my PhD. My undergraduate degrees (Computer Engineering and Pure Maths) are from UNSW in Sydney, Australia.

My recent research has examined security enforcement and data dissemination mechanisms within wide-area distributed systems. In particular, I have worked with event-based middleware, role-based access control, decentralised information flow control, and try to develop connections between these technologies. My research is of growing importance to cloud and grid computing: large-scale public services, such as electronic health record repositories, must manage sensitive data in a secure manner.
