I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Glasgow.

My research focuses on self-calibrating interfaces which allow you to immediately control a device without the device initially knowing how to interpret your actions. Explore this interactive paper for an intuitive walkthrough.

I teach interdisciplinary design thinking courses and develop smartphone based technologies for STEAM education. See trycurio.com and student projects 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.

Talk to me about the history of technology, bootstrapping, and start-up.

I maintain a list of low-carbon computing teaching resources.


I work part-time and enjoy being a dad to my first son born 08/2021.

Gathering essays on why inspiring people do what they do – coming soon.

Running user studies for IFTT-PIN. Working on toolings and demos for Espruino, see 12. Writing a grant to bring self-calibration to continuous interaction domains.



Projects I am proud of:


Part of the London 15th cohort at Entrepreneur First. Research fellow at CRI Collaboratory. Teamleader in the Cronin Group on the digitization of Chemistry. Co-founded Pollen Robotics to commercialize an innovative modular robotic technology. Exhibited artist.

More broadly, I enjoy building things and bloom within interdisciplinary innovative teams.
