Research Interests
BCMS Honours Topic: "Fine-tuning alerting systems filter."

Alerting systems support human operators and other subscribers by notifying them of information relevant to their interests as it occurs. Alerting systems accept events triggered by changes in the state of a publisher, and match these events against the userís personal profile. A publisher may be anything ranging from a temperature sensor to a GPS beacon.

However, traditional implementations of filtering algorithms for alerting systems prove difficult for even advanced users to operate competently as there is no simple way of setting parameters for the filtering process. My project utilises prior research in this area to create and integrate a filtering parameter selection solution into an existing alerting system prototype. The solution will then be evaluated to analyse its usability in a user study.
