    My main research interests are in the field of artificial intelligence, in particular in the areas of smart environments, ambient computing and intelligence, knowledge representation and inference, constraint satisfaction, and spatio-temporal reasoning. I have been working in these areas since the early 1980s and have experienced the ups and downs of artificial intenlligence, but I have never lost interest in this exiting field of research. Most of my publications are in artificial intelligence, as you can see on Google Scholar. For more details about me, visit my personal website

    My research interests are in human computer interaction. In particular I am interested in the use of gesture-based interaction. One area of work is developing recognizers for sketched diagrams using digital pen input devices. Another area is exploring multi-modal interfaces using tangible and touch input.

    My research interests cover many areas associated with the design and development of software systems to help engineers to develop higher quality systems and better undertake improved management. In particular, I am interested in software traceability, retrieving relationships among artifacts generated during the software development life cycle. Another area is data analysis, leveraging human behavior theories and empirical studies, to design and build better software tools and approaches.

    I have been an academic at Massey University since 1999. My original qualifications are in computer science and information systems, and I have a more recent qualification in higher education. I am interested in applied research, in using advanced technologies to bring benefits to institutions, teachers and learners. I have worked in the areas of technology-supported assessment and lifelong learning, and many further areas in teaching and learning. My work in higher education aims to improve academic development approaches and provide relevant contexts for learning about teaching. I lead Massey's Research on Teaching and Learning Group.

    My research is in the area of efficient Fixed Parameter algorithms. I also work on the analysis of clinical data and employ these algorithms to do pattern search on multivariate models that I produce from the data using machine learning techniques. I currently am looking at data sets related to Otitis Media (deafness), ALRI (acute lung infections),  human trafficking, and transportation.

    I undertake research in software engineering, with special interest in software (source code) quality and maintenance, especially when dealing with legacy systems. I am also interested in open source software and how to improve the quality of such systems.

    Most of research is empirical in nature, and I am a big supporter of the open science initiative, and most of my research use open date, contribut publically accessable data,  and ensure that our research software are accessible as open source. Read more here.
