I am a lecturer in the Department of Computer Science
in the University of York.
My avian namesake
My current research interests are in
radionavigation, especially the development of novel digital signal
processing algorithms for (previously) Decca Navigator and (currently) Loran-C.
I shall be happy to supervise research students in this, or a related, area.
In the past I have also worked on:
Some of my research papers and reports are available in PostScript form
via the WWW.
- the implementation of programming languages, in particular Occam and Algol 68;
- parallel processing techniques;
- algorithms for text formatting;
- parsing van Wijngaarden grammars, and the applications of VWGs in
natural language processing;
- formalisms for describing natural languages, especially developments of
GPSG, such as G2PSG.

I am an enthusiastic user of the Web for teaching and research.
Here are some of my own web pages.
I try to use the Web wherever practicable to make tedious admin. jobs less irksome.
Unfortunately, work continues to expand to fill the time available [Parkinson].
I have a long-standing interest in telephones.
My other interests are mainly musical: I play the oboe in, and until June 1999 I was the
Secretary of, the York Symphony Orchestra, which
is one of the oldest amateur orchestras in the United Kingdom.
We celebrated our centenary in June 1999.
