Research Projects


My research work span the entire spectrum of the Web. My research focus includes investigating standards that form the backbone of the Web, designing complex software applications using the technical standards, and studying the user experience aspects of designed artifacts. Specifically, my research efforts are about system interoperability, human rights datasets, web services, design patterns, design and development of complex software systems, data science, data-driven decision making, website quality and user experience, active analytics, IT for Nonprofits, IT standardization, and collaborative web search.


I provide freelance technology consultancy services to small businesses, startup companies, and non-profit organizations. I offer consultation on technology and business planning, lean development, designing complex web application systems, data-driven decision making, minimum viable product development, and product testing. If you are interested in the consultation services, contact me via email.

Community Sexual Health Education and Research Initiative (CSHERI)

The CSHERI is a collaborative group of university faculty, community stakeholders, community partners, and professionals in the field of sexual health. CSHERI and its members work from an evidence-based perspective and conduct impactful, ethical, and community-based research to inform sexual health practices. The founder and director of CSHERI is Dr. Robert J. Zeglin, Assistant Professor in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program at the University of North Florida.

As a member of CSHERI team, I provide consultation as well as supervise the design and develop data collection application systems. These data collection systems will be used by CSHERI researchers to gather sexual health behavioral data. We are building these systems in both web and mobile device platforms. William Milligan is an information systems student working as a research assistant for CSHERI and developing the web-based data collection system.
