Personal statement

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences. I present classes on databases and Semantic Web technologies. My research interests focus on data intensive systems, with two main themes; the design of large data sets for predictive analytics and efficient representations of graph data. My predctive analytics work has focused on tourism, finance and chemistry. I am involved in commercialisation of some aspects of the large data set research and have previous experience of exploiting my research in efficient data representations.
