Here you can find out something about my research as well as past and forthcoming publications and papers given at conferences. I am a lecturer in the UEA Law School, specifically in the fields of Information Technology, Intellectual Property and Media Law.
My research relates most directly to Human Rights and the internet, and in particular privacy rights. I have recently completed my PhD: my thesis looks at how deficiencies in data privacy on the internet impact upon our autonomy, and suggests that comprehensive, coherent data privacy rights can begin to address that threat. My thesis can be found online here.
Underlying my thesis is my model of how the current, substantially commercial form of the internet functions - the Symbiotic Web. Details of this model can be found here.
