Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on logical diagrams (e.g. Euler and Venn diagrams, existential graphs). This includes formalising graphical languages for problems such as software specification and ontology egineering, testing their effectiveness and analysing the way that such notations communicate information. The latter analysis uses results from empirical studies but also cognitive science, semiotics and the philosophy of notation.
