Unpublished Works:

In this sections are two of my first attemps at scientific writing during my honours year at James Cook University.

  • 2004 Dynamic Range Queries in Vector Space - This literature review was the first piece of scientific writing I've ever done, and, like most first attempt, was nothing special.

  • 2004 Efficient Algorithms for Molecular Dynamics Simulations and Other Dynamic Spatial Join Queries - This is my honours project, which help earn me a class one. In this paper I proposed and tested several new and existing methods of speeding up pair-wise particle interaction. I do have a warning though that there is a significant mistake in results I need to fix (when I get the chance) before I consider publishing it.
