Modelling and Simulation, Digital Service Design, Semantic Technologies, Cybersecurity.

Research Interests

My research interests lie at the interface between software, ubiquitous hardware and human users in the development of new digital services that use use cloud for scale, big data for intelligence and graphs/semantic technologies for modelling.  I typically use design science methods and simulation to explore human behaviour in a range of contexts (from healthcare to heritage).

Research supervision

I supervise students who are interested in the development of novel digital services and the modelling & simulation of their use, planned effect and impact. I am particularly interested in data-driven and hybrid simulation approaches.  Unsurprisingly, most of these digital services are mobile, sometime augmenting the environment with verbal or visual elements.
