St Andrews

Tristan Henderson is a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. His research aims to better understand user behaviour and use this to build improved systems; an approach which has involved measurements and testbeds for networked games, wireless networks, mobile sensors, smartphones, online social networks and opportunistic networks. He serves on the JANET UK Wireless Advisory Group, the steering committee of the NetGames workshop, and is co-PI of the CRAWDAD data archive, the world's largest wireless network data archive, with over 90 datasets and tools in use by over 3500 users from 88 countries. Dr Henderson holds an MA in Economics from Cambridge University and an MSc and PhD in Computer Science from University College London.
