My research motivation is to enhance data-intensive methodologies in computer science. I achieve this by applying and studying computer science in an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary context. I see three major challenges in the area of data-intensive computation: to make connecting data and methods easier at a conceptual level, to improve ways in which to organise data movement and computation once these are connected, and to provide effective user interfaces to steer both these processes. The grand challenge is to get all of these to work in harmony while the volume and complexity of data, methods and the number of interacting people is growing at an unprecedented rate.
