I am a research student being supervised by Dr. Allan Jones, Prof. Chris Bissell and Dr. David Chapman.
My research theme is related to the history and development of broadband technologies in the UK. The different broadband technologies being covered include ISDN, DSL, optical fibre and wireless broadband technologies. The research focusses on social, technical, political, regulatory and economic factors that have impacted the development, deployment and adoption of these broadband technologies in the UK.
My research interests include broader themes about understanding & analysing the factors that influence the telecomms, media & technology industry and examining the outcomes in terms of success or failure.
