Oliver is currently working as a Research Associate at Lancaster University. He is currently involved in four research projects.
- 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.
- Freight Traffic Control 2050 – 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.
- Mobile Age – Co-design, co-creation, and participatory design to encourage the engagement of senior citizens with digital technology, open data and open government services. Through the project Lancaster University look to engage with stakeholders in Cumbria and across the North West and build new methods for co-creation as well as use data science techniques to provide digital services and technology that empower senior citizens.
- Recall – Understanding the role of digital technology and pervasive display in the role of increasing cognitive recall.
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.
