Research Interests

Colin's PhD research showed that refinement relations can be created between visualisations of complex systems and their formal specifications. More specifically focusing on the Z specification language, state transition diagrams, and μ-Charts.

Colin's postdoctoral research is for a Science for Technological Innovation Seed Project called Nga taonga o nehe ra me te heke mai: treasures of the past and future. This project involves developing decentralised technology for Māori communities to develop, store and share taonga in a fashion that retains their ownership and sovereignty of their data. The project focuses on how to handle and support disputes and differences in data e.g. Tribal histories: the differences in narratives, people involved, locations, and times.
