Research interests ...

A list of my publications can be found on Google Scholar.

Another area of interest is how to get the greatest impact out of our research, in particular, how to be sure that our results are correct and how to accurately predict the behaviour of an algorithm in a practical setting. What basis should we have for choosing amongst methods? What is the computing equivalent to the 'properties of materials' that are necessary in engineering?

I'm also interested in computing history, in particular CSIRAC. (And there's also my calculators.)

Always open to suggestions! And ... new research students welcome.

Here are some vaguely useful sites.
