Research Activities

Brad Nickerson has an interest in algorithms and data structures for efficient search of multi-dimensional data. His current research activities in this area include data structures for large volumes of spatial data, data structures for combined text and spatial data, efficient algorithms for answering moving object queries and indexing of multimedia data.

He also has research interests in the general area of knowledge based systems. Areas being investigated include how to represent knowledge about spatial objects and spatial data in computer programs, natural language morphology representation to speed up text search, and a language for sensor webs (further information on this last item is here).
