Research interests

My main interests are modelling & simulation and digital infrastructures.  M&S can be applied to many different problems and we have had successes in healthcare, manufacturing, etc. and are working with African universities to develop capabilities in this area (as well as Open Science and Data Science). 

Digital infrastructures underpin interdisciplinary research collaborations. Again I've led projects where we've developed digitial infrastructures in Africa with African national research and education networks with an extensive range of African stakeholders. 

I'm particularly interested to address SDGs and climate change in Africa by developing African research capabilities.
