He spent the last decade researching and developing mobile services and technologies — at Hewlett-Packard Labs in Palo Alto and Bristol, and then at matter 2 media. He is an expert on pervasive (ubiquitous) computing, which makes use of cameras, location technologies and other sensors found on mobile phones to deliver media that integrates with the real world around us. He has been the leader of industrial partnerships. He is a textbook author, an inventor on ten patents, has published many scientific papers, and is a regular speaker at conferences.
