While at the LSE he was also a Research Student at the Centre for the Assessment of Risk and Regulation (CARR) for two years and taught on the subject of e-commerce.
His main research interests are in the areas of heterogeneity in the design and development of ICTs and the role of ICTs in the reconfiguration of many areas of social life, from games and entertainment to markets and marketplaces, commerce, economic and political integration, and finance. Prior to his thesis, he worked at the ISI Group of the LSE as Research Officer under Dr Susan Scott on the Moving Markets project that studied the strategic use of ICTs in clearing and settlement arrangements in the reconfiguration of financial markets.
