I work in the Information Services Division at UCL. Most of my job involves postgraduate training. I specialise in
- statistical applications
- qualitative analysis software
C/C++ - the general language of choice for student training by ISD is now Java.Python.
- database design
- text processing
I trained as a linguist and specialised in discourse analysis and computational linguistics. I no longer do any linguistics of any consequence.
I contribute occasionally to Wikipedia articles in my domains of interest (see above). I wrote the Wikibook A Quick Introduction to Unix and I am currently writing Getting Started with SPSS - nope abandoned that because there is a much better book near complete. I am now working on Statistics Ground Zero.
