Research Interests

Over my career, I have published over 100 refereed research papers detailing my contributions to mathematics (with particular reference to the discovery of the Baker-Beynon duality), to theoretical computer science (including the introduction of a notion of computational equivalence, and its application to the characterisation of boolean functions computable by planar monotone circuits) and to Empirical Modelling, a body of principles and tools that offers an alternative conceptual framework for computing with applications to human-computer interaction, computer graphics and CAD, software development, decision-support, educational technology and humanities computing. For more details, see the links to my research resume and the publications on the Empirical Modelling website.


I am an Emeritus Reader in Computer Science at the University of Warwick, now pursuing research and teaching in Empirical Modelling full-time. I obtained my BSc and PhD in Mathematics at King's College London. Before joining Warwick in 1975, I worked as a research assistant at the Open University, and held an SRC Research Fellowship in Mathematics at University College, Swansea.
