I studied Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Otago, graduating with a BSc(Hons) in Mathematics, and then gained a PhD from the University of Edinburgh, studying in the Department of Artificial Intelligence (now merged into the School of Informatics). After a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Computer Science at Otago, I had a short-term position in the Computer Science department at Massey University, and then joined Otago's Information Science department in 1994.
When I am not spending time with my wife, Janine, and son, Nicholas, I can be found performing as Principal Clarinet in the Southern Sinfonia, Dunedin's part-time professional orchestra.
