Ideas:
“  My current research focuses on technology law, cybercrime, artificial intelligence, and cognitive robotics as they engage issues of data retention, global health, reputational privacy, national security, and evidentiary challenges raised by the emerging law of digital speech. I have published a series of 3 articles with Dr Marilyn McMahon featuring the humble emoji as legal artifact: as a tool of crime, a precursor of digital speech, and a means of conveying human diversity through social media. Currently on my desk are: an article featuring institutional analysis of police and military collaborations in times of public emergency and two book proposals: LOOK FOR THE SIGNS: evidentiary challenges of nonverbal communications" and "THE NEXT PANDEMIC: The Law And Biotechnology of Global Health Crises."  ”
