Now

This is a “Now” page which explains what I’m currently working on. It was last updated 2020-09-25.

General

I am exploring ideas for my next startup but have not settled on a specific area as yet. In-between this, I am available to Seedcamp portfolio companies for ad-hoc CTO-style advice. I am actively angel investing.

Research

Having submitted my Environmental Technology MSc thesis on the energy intensity of video streaming over Wi-Fi and 4G, I am now working on submitting it as a paper to an academic journal. If accepted, I expect it will be published in 2021.

Reading

I publish a list of my favourite books each year and my top 10 book recommendations for startup founders and CEOs are here.

History

2020-08-17

I am exploring ideas for my next startup but have not settled on a specific area as yet. In the meantime, I am building a side-project in Python so I can experiment with Azure products such as Functions and CosmosDB. It may or may not graduate to a commercial project, but I intend to get beta users to try it out later this year. In-between this, I am available to Seedcamp portfolio companies for ad-hoc CTO-style advice. I am actively angel investing. I am completing the write-up for my research thesis on the energy intensity of video streaming over Wi-Fi and 4G for my Environmental Technology MSc at Imperial College London. I am also writing several papers on energy consumption in IT which will likely be published in 2021.
