Research Interests

My research interest is in the area of high-performance computing. In particular, how to efficiently model and solve problems that have a too high time-complexity to be solved on anything less than a grid. Hence, during my PhD, I developed the world's foremost parallel constraint solver. The solver is available here, and will soon have my modifications; JaCoP

I'm also interested in cognitive science, which deals with human rationality, and how that affects the design of software and user interfaces.

I did all my studies at Lund University in Sweden, my previous page is here: Christian@LU


My main hobbies are rock climbing and photography. While Wellington is not the climbing capital of the world, there are opportunities. I also try, with limited success, to run, but hiking is more fun.
