I have completed my time as a research assistant and British Telecom fellow in the Media Lab's Software Agents Group under Professor Pattie Maes and submitted my thesis, "Peer to Peer Transactions in Agent-mediated Electronic Commerce [PDF, 1.7mb]." The project documented by the thesis is the Atomic Market, a peer-to-peer market system allowing software agents to make markets in everyday transactions.

Thank you Media Lab, MIT, BT, sponsors, and all the amazing and wonderful people who made this possible.

Project archives and current activities may be found on my
