Personal profile


Previous to my current position, I have made contributions in ECG signal processing using artificial neural networks, including signal classification and compression.  Since working in UWS I have had little time for research, but current interests include virtualisation, open source software and networking protocols at layers 2-4.  I also have expertise in bicycle aerodynamics and sustainable energy.

Desired research direction

Virtualisation, open source software

Other areas of expertise available for knowledge exchange

Networking protocols; sustainable energy; bicycle aerodynamics

Current research activities

My time for research is currently limited owing to teaching and administration duties.
