Research Interests

My main research interests are:
  • Algorithm design - I have an active interest in matters relating to the design of efficient algorithms and tackling complex problems.
  • Databases - I supervise students in database use and optimization.
  • Network reliability - my PhD topic is the computation of a number of reliability and performability metrics for large networks.
  • Artificial Intelligence in games - especially persistent worlds, emergent behaviors and 'realistic' agents.
  • Program synthesis - my MSc topic was the automated generation of programs from formal specifications.
