  Research Interests

 Research Grants (last five years only)

Received an Otago Research Grant entitled “Adaptive Workflow Modelling in a Distributed Environment” in 1999 for $22,678.  This project involves capturing the business processes associated with a particular organization and creating a dynamical model of the workflow associated with these processes and making it available in a distributed environment for inspection and modification.  

A named researcher in the Public Good Science and Technolgy grant called “Distributed Computing Technology and Application”.  My participation will involve developing a workflow module and contributing toward an agent-based conversation module for a groupware environment.
