Research interests include a wide range of topics related to one or more of: software for data analysis; programming for scientific applications; data visualization and graphics; general issues in scientific data analysis. Serious research activity has been focussed for some time on the S language and currently the R project and related efforts. Fortunately, this raft is large enough to accomodate many interests. For examples, see the items in the Bibliography on my web site, and in particular the book "Software for Data Analyis" (Springer, 2008).
