Personal profile

Research interests

I specialise in international aspects of the IT society, a field within which I have published a range of books and articles, and given presentations in Australia, Asia, North America and Europe.

Until the end of 2016, my research was focused on my Future Fellowship project funded by the Australian Research Council (project number FT120100583): "A global Internet presence comes with a global legal risk exposure. Everyone from casual Facebook users to major e-businesses are at risk of being sued anywhere their conduct has an impact. Taking account of cloud computing, Web 2.0 and geo-location technologies, this project reassesses when courts can claim jurisdiction over Internet conduct."
