In May 2008 I was awarded a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Glasgow in the field of Ubiquitous Computing and subsequently worked for 2 years as a Research Associate. I was working on the EPSRC funded Contextual Software project that was researching dynamic, recommender based, adaptive, mobile systems. This involved building many different types of tools to support and connect developers, evaluators and users with their part in the creation of large-scale mobile device-based systems.
