Research Biography

Dr Denise de Vries has, since the early 1980s, developed commercial complex database systems for a variety of industry domains including local government, airline, public libraries, para-medical, diet and nutrition, commercial cleaning, automotive parts manufacturing, building and construction, inventory control, conference organisation and commercial photography.

Based on this industry experience she researches techniques to preserve digital history and data semantics including techniques to deal with changes to information in a database such as structural change, semantic change and constraint change.

Research Interests

Dr de Vries' research focuses on digital preservation. She is the lead researcher in the Computer Archaeology Laboratory. Computer Archaeology is the science of recovering computer data encoded and/or encrypted in now obsolete media or formats. It is not merely data recovery, it is ensuring data intelligibility. One may recover the data, but not access it or understand its content. Successful computer archaeology renders the data intelligible. She is a member of Medical Device Research Institute (MDRI) and Centre for Knowledge and Interaction Technologies (CKIT).

Data Mining Projects

  • Breast Cancer and Lymphoedema
    To discover associations, if any, between the two conditions and outcomes.

Mesodata: Engineering Domains for Attribute Evolution and Data Integration
This research focuses on the utility of augmenting the information capacity of the attribute domain in a reusable and systematic manner.
This is done by more clearly delineating between domain definition - mesodata - and schema definition - metadata.
