Research overview

I am interested in distributed systems in general, and distributed storage, peer-to-peer systems and middleware in particular.

I am involved in the ESRC-funded Digitising Scotland project, which aims to construct a linked genealogy of Scottish historical records, with Chris Dibben, Lee Williamson, Zhiqiang Feng and Zengyi Huang at Edinburgh, and Alan Dearle, Özgür Akgün and Tom Dalton in Computer Science at St Andrews. So far we have focused on automatic classification of certain fields within the records (cause of death and occupation); now we are starting to experiment with various probabilistic linkage approaches. This work also includes Eilidh Garrett and Alice Reid at Cambridge, and Peter Christen at ANU.

I also lead a work package on linkage methodology within the ESRC-funded Administrative Data Research Centre - Scotland (funding), with Alan DearleÖzgür AkgünPeter Christen and Alasdair Gray at Heriot-Watt.

I am supervisor for Tom Dalton, who is doing his PhD on handling uncertainty in data linkage, and second supervisor for Simone Conte, who is investigating user models for managing distributed data.
