My current research is focused on digital heritage systems (cultural informatics), particularly the design of virtual museum exhibitions.  I am currently interested in how to apply blockchain technology to the back end of such exhibitions where collections metadata can be tracked so that access can be managed and validated (provenance) against digital rights in various contexts, e.g. virtual museums, which may open up better opportunity to assign revenue streams. I also have an interest in wider blockchain and Internet of Things technologies in the context of digital, and particularly, shared economies.
