A Little Research connects practitioners with academic research that provides reliable evidence to support decisions and solves technical problems. I have particular experience in software development, algorithms, information security and privacy, library technology and open data. I’m available to conduct research in any of these fields, and will consider projects in other areas of computing and engineering on a case-by-case basis.
For example, suppose you want to identify the species of a flower from a photograph. Researchers have published numerous algorithms for just this purpose but it takes some effort to find the right one. I can find the algorithms for you and prepare a summary of how well they work under various conditions, from which you can choose the algorithm that best suits your needs (or decide that the existing algorithms are not good enough and more research is required).
