I’m carrying out doctoral research into urban spatial systems at the Center for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) at University College London. CASA is an off-shoot of the Bartlett school of Architecture.
My supervisors are Shi Zhou, who specialises in network science, and Mike Batty, whose work is summarised in Cities & Complexity (MIT Press), a worthwhile read for anyone interested in software and cities.
Before my PhD I worked as part of the startup team at Last.fm – an online social music platform based in the UK. I developed web software for them for over 3 years. Last.fm used principles of emergence, network intelligence, collaborative filtering and Big Data to map all the music on the planet.
In 2004 I studied computing at Imperial College, London. My dissertation was on Social Software.
