Dr Peter Chapman

I am lecturer in the Software Engineering Group in the School of Computing. My research interests are in information visualisation, specifically of set-based data, and formal methods. I am the PI on the EPSRC Grant "Visual Justifications for Ontologies", which investigates whether creating diagrammatic representations of ontology justifications could help ontology engineers repair incoherence.

  • Information Visualisation
    Information visualisation is the use of enhanced Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) to communicate and interact with complex data sets such as social networks, multiattribute tables, and financial data. Pages of text and numbers are not the most effective way to communicate or understand information.
