Research Contributions

The focus of recent research has been in the area of artificial intelligence and applications in biomedicine. In particular, knowledge representation and machine learning techniques have been developed to represent and reason about images and diagrams. These techniques have been applied to problems in domains such as protein structure determination, crystal growth and medical diagnosis.

Professional Activities

Teaching During my time at Queen's, my teaching has focussed on the areas of artificial intelligence, mathematical logic and bioinformatics. This has involved the teaching of foundational material as well as advanced applications. Recently I was the primary developer of a new program: Biomedical Computing (http://www.cs.queensu.ca/biomed/), a Bachelor of Science Honors, Subject of Specialization Degree. This has involved extensive curriculum and course development as it is the first program of its kind in Canada. Following is a full list of courses taught since 1981.
