Research interests include, problem domain knowledge extraction, requirements engineering, approaches to object-oriented analysis/design, interface evaluation/usability testing and support strategies for dyslexic computer users.
Current Research Projects
- Support Strategies for Dyslexic Computer Users, including the on-going evaluation of the DUIST framework.
- An investigation into alternative approaches to stimulate student engagement in traditionally unpopular/difficult computer disciplines such as discrete mathematics.
- A study into the use of role-play as a valuable teaching aid for students studying requirements engineering, formal specification of software systems and elicitation techniques in higher education.
At present, the tutor involved is supervising 4 PhD students with a variety of project topic areas including, the developing quality software, teaching and learning programming techniques and interface development strategies.
