Current research interests include the VLAB Project at NUI Galway, in
particular the development of the communications and messaging services that
will be used within this project. Other areas of research activity include
the development of remote medical monitoring and diagnostic devices and the
use of distributed agent architectures for financial services brokering.
Responsible for Work Package 5 in the VLAB Project. The goal is to develop
an enhanced Notification Service with support for events with XML content
and event filtering and correlation policies defined in XML. This service
will provide the basis for all inter-agent communication on the VLAB
project. The service could also potentially be used for any application that
requires asynchronous messaging based on a filtered XML content stream.
