I am fascinated by the internet of things and the impact it'll have on our lives over the next few years and have an interest in renewable energy and in particular wind and tidal. I have experience of auditing the safety systems associated with wind farms. 

I have been published in all of the leading sector journals and appeared on BBC radio discussing a range of issues. I regularly speak at conferences throughout the UK as well as in Europe and North America, particularly on food law issues.
