Education Research

I am keenly interested in improving the quality of Computer Science education, in particular, the development of problem solving skills. I am one of the investigators in a project, funded by Google, to promote the use of problem solving on Computer Science. I am also one of the investigators in a University of Adelaide project to improve and promulgate our school's web-based automatic marking and assessment system.

I am a current member of the Education Research Group of Adelaide (ERGA) and have recently completed the Graduate Certificate in Higher Education course offered at Adelaide. My main areas of interest are Competititive Learning, Automated Assessment, Plagiarism Detection, and the use of version-control systems. I am interested in establishing collaborative links on these, and related, topics. I am currently working on the use of genetic algorithms for grouping students on the basis of diagnostic assessments.
