I am a computer scientist, an Information Technology practitioner, a computational mathematician, a combinatorialist, and a bioinformatician. I am interested in all of the above, as well as mathematics education, tertiary teaching, Clifford algebras, space science, science in general, innovation and entrepreneurship. I especially like it when people use my work to do something useful.
