My current research is in the area of sequential pattern mining (of linear temporal sequences) and the rules that can be discovered using the basic thirteen temporal interval relations and extensions to include midpoints that were developed as part of my Doctoral Thesis. The visualisation of the these rules also plays an important role and research into how best to represent them is my current focus in this research area.
Further to this, the field of longitudinal or higher-order mining is an ongoing interest.
As a member of the Enterprise Information Technology group my interests and research goals are centred on security both within and outside of the enterprise and the challenges of teaching to large audiences using an on-line platform
I have a considerabel interest in Scuba Diving and the delivery of courses in an on-line format.
