Nigel Davies holds a BSc and PhD in Computer Science, both from Lancaster University, UK. Having completed his studies he was a visiting researcher at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS) before returning to Lancaster in 1994 to help create the University's Mobile Computing group. He has since managed numerous projects at Lancaster, including the MOST and GUIDE projects, both of which have been widely reported on in the academic literature and the popular press. During 1999/ 2000 he spent a year as a visiting researcher at Sony's Distributed Systems Lab in San Jose working on integrating mobile devices with home AV networks. In recognition of his work in establishing Lancaster as a major research center in the field of mobile computing he was awarded a personal chair in the Computing Department in 2000. He has participated actively in the mobile computing research community and has served in a number of roles including Program Chair for IEEE WMCSA 2000, tutorials co-chair for Mobicom 2000 and demo chair for Mobicom 2001. In addition, Nigel is an Associate Editor in Chief of IEEE Pervasive Magazine and an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing. He currently divides his time between Lancaster and Tucson, AZ where he is an Associate Professor at the University of Arizona.
