WWW Database Projects

I started this just as an experiment with the Pat Project above, but turned out to be the start of a few major projects that I did. Anyhow, without further ado, here are the projects (note that some of them are restricted, so don't blame me if you can't get access)

My Resumé

If you are an employer, and you are intersted in my research area (document database systems - see the research section in my home page), I would like you to look at my resumé - which is available in the following formats:
