Current Research

My main research interests are in hypermedia and hyperstructure, and especially in attempting to find information structures that fit 'real world' information (such as scientific knowledge) better than the conventional relational model. I am also interested in the use of multimedia and hypermedia in education - especially in the application of these to education in areas that include adaptive hypermedia and mobile learning.
