For Researchers

The projects featured on this website are primarily academic research projects, though all have an applied context. The majority of journal articles, book chapters and peer-reviewed conference presentations can be found at this link where you can click through to journal websites and download open access versions. Where open access is not available, anyone wanting a copy who doesn’t have a subscription to the relevant journal should email me to request a pre-print or check on ResearchGate or my Google Scholar profile.

On this page we will post details of other research outputs from the work of DART, most of which are conference presentations and may not have been peer reviewed. In the case of slides, images will normally have been removed.  Please contact me directly if you would like to receive a complete set of slides including images.
