I've supervised about 20 postgrad theses, including 8 PhDs. On technical topics where the applications or implications are of significance to the thesis-work, I'm an appropriate secondary supervisor. For thesis-work that is primarily about strategy or policy, I'm an appropriate chair of the supervisory committee; but it's important that one or more co-supervisors with relevant technical expertise also be on the team.
I'm a consultant in the strategic and policy aspects of eBusiness, information infrastructure, dataveillance and privacy. I focus on emergent technology, in order to understand its nature, its applications and its implications. That enables me to give 'distant early warning' to business and government about the opportunities and the threats that are looming just over the horizon.
