Research interests

Scientific Data ManagementInformation RetrievalRecommender SystemsAutomated ReasoningLogic


I am an associate professor in Information Studies at the University of Ottawa and an adjunct research professor at the Institute of Cognitive Science at Carleton University. Prior to his appointment I was a Research Officer at the Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information at Canada's National Research Council (NRC). I also spent many years doing research in constraint logic programming at BNR / Nortel and applying text mining technology to the analysis and classification of email at Entrust. I am interested in recommender systems for digital libraries, the automatic inference of metadata schemas for scientific research datasets and the cognitive science aspects of automated reasoning systems.
