My research interests are in the areas of geographic knowledge representation, knowledge discovery, spatio-temporal data models, spatial cognition, AI approaches to knowledge representation, geocomputation, and GIS design.

Since the early 1990's, my work has centered on the representation of time and temporal dynamics, including database, visual and cognitive representation and how these interrelate. Arguing that the human user and the computer must be viewed as components of a single system, my book, Representations of Space and Time, explores an integrated perspective, including philosophical, cognitive and technical aspects.
