Oliver is currently working as a Senior Research Associate at Lancaster University. He is currently involved in the following projects:

  1. Freight Traffic Control 2050 – As part of FTC2050, Oliver is looking at blending manifest data amongst other last-mile logistics data to enable the co-creation of an air traffic control style dashboard and data platform know as “Freight Traffic Control”. This will underpin FTC2050 and enable the development of new and novel interactive visualisations for exploring and designing road and curb-side infrastructure in the urban environment. Lancaster University’s role in this project is to provide a data hub to bring together multiple transport data feeds to aid with decision support and optimisations in Freight Traffic network in London.
  2. EIS –  The development and deployment of a campus wide Energy Information System (EIS) for Energy Lancaster and Lancaster University. This system brings together multiple live and historical data feeds for the whole of Lancaster University’s campus, providing a frame work and tool set for data ingress, processing, information presentation and decision support. Oliver is work closely with Lancaster University’s Facilities team, ISS and SCC to provide a platform that supports the energy reduction targets of the institution,  running and maintenance of buildings, and the inclusion of energy and building data in research and teaching.

Oliver completed his PhD at the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University under the supervision of Dr. Mike Hazas in 2016. The focus of my research is on understanding the impacts of media and IT in the home and understanding how these impacts vary dependant on configurations and use of digital technology in social practices.
