I was born in Cardiff and it took me 20 years to find my way back here, via Canada, France, and Scotland. I'm Professor of Intelligent Systems at Cardiff University, and a Director of the Crime & Security Research Institute. I'm interested in how to get actionable information to people where and when they need it, particularly in public safety, security, and societal domains. My students and I work closely with end-users, policy-makers, and people in front-line situations. I also love science fiction: HAL, Marvin, Roderick, K9 & co got me into computing in the first place.
