About David

I received BSc(Hons) (1989) and PhD (1994) degrees in Computer Science from Lancaster University, UK. My PhD focussed on Intelligent Learning Environments. After my PhD I did post-doctoral research on digital libraries within the Computing Department at Lancaster.

In 2000/1 I was a visiting lecturer here at Waikato. In 2001/2002 I was a Visiting Lecturer in Digital Libraries at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA.

Research Interests

My research interests include:

  • Digital Libraries
  • Library & Information Science
  • HCI - Human Computer Interaction.
