Research and Teaching


David is currently working as part of the Content Models for Enhancement and Sustainability (CMES) project, developing an extensible framework for representing and managing broad categories of complex digital collections produced by arts and humanities research, and a methodology for extending this framework. By creating open, generic yet flexible solutions, the project aims to maximise the sustainability of digital resources through technological change, and to facilitate the re-use of the materials in innovative ways that neither we nor the resource developers could anticipate.
