My research interests are broadly in the area of Artificial Intelligence, particularly with respect to model based reasoning and software analysis. Further details are contained in the 'work' section of my Personal site and my publications are listed below. I enjoy writing software and there are several projects available to download from the 'software' section of my Personal site. When not at work I kite surf, mountain bike, flying model aircraft, and occasionally tinker with my Westfield kit car.
