Currently my teaching focuses on Semantic Web Technologies, covering topics such as RDF, RDFS, SPARQL, OWL and the use of Protege and DL Reasoners for the development and use of ontologies. I am also teaching introductions to Database Systems at undergraduate and postgraduate level. 

Previous teaching experience includes courses at the undergraduate as well as postgraduate level, covering the following subject areas: Introduction to Programming and Software Engineering, Java Programming, Object-Oriented Programming, Object-Oriented Software Engineering, Database Systems and Distributed Systems. I have also taught various topics in Bioinformatics, including algorithms such as for sequence comparison and phylogenetic trees, using Perl for implementation exercises.  

Lecture Notes and other supporting material for my teaching can be found on the VISION system, Heriot-Watt University's Virtual Learning Environment.
