Research Interests

Design and Determination
is my contribution to the Ashgate book series Voices in Development Management.
It brings together these interests from a design perspective.

Intellectual Capital Flows, Identity and Regional development This follows from an ESRC Science in Society funded project: "Diffusion of knowledge through the migration of skilled labour" and research into the role of technology transfer from large scale scientific collaborations in maintaining governmental and public support. The role of place branding, identity and heritage is being explored in the context of regional development through the attraction of inward migration and investment.
Knowledge creation and management in virtual organizations and global production networks This work originated with research into manufacturing technology transfer, initially into Australia from Asia and Europe, and with practical prototyping of networked resources with "virtual journeys". It now includes a collaboration on the impact of the BRICs economies on the global aerospace sector.
Global information systems, E-governance and social inclusion The characteristics of the Internet have changed the nature of distributed resources and practices. All levels of government and private enterprise face the challenge of the electronic mobilisation of their stakeholders.
Information and knowledge management for global design and development This work formed the basis of my contribution to the Centre for IKD and originated with my involvement with IFIP Working Group 8.2 and 9.4.
Problem-based learning and e-learning I maintain an interest in the development of electronic support and problem based learning since my involvement with the network supported by Problarc at the University of Newcastle, NSW, Australia.
