Personal profile

Biography

After my first degree in Computing I worked for a year as a COBOL programmer with British Steel. I then returned to Sheffield University to study for an MSc Information Systems which led to my PhD in IR (Information Retrieval). My research was in the implementation and evaluation of novel algorithms for text-based retrieval. The algorithms in question don 't look particularly novel anymore, they are at the heart of Internet search engines such as Google. I like to think that some of the Google programmers read my papers and that I contributed in some small way to the vast fortunes they have made.

I completed my PhD in 1989 and took up a teaching position at the University of Sheffield in the Department of Information Studies. I left Sheffield to take up my current position at the University of Huddersfield in 1993.
