My immediate research objective is the conclusion and peer-review publication of the work I have carried out over the last four years on modelling water-borne pathogens. I have one paper currently being submitted entitled "A model for estimating norovirus variability in shellfish and predicting minimum depuration times", with a further three papers earmarked for publication in the immediate future. These papers build a strongly linked mathematical framework of the transmission of water-borne pathogens from point/non-point pollution sources then into farmed shellfish.\newline I also have a strong impetus to further explore the topic of my 2012 dissertation "A Process To Determine All Codewords of a Binary (n,M,d)-Code". This work defined a process for the construction of an optimal codeword alphabet, M, from a specific n-length binary code with Hamming distance d, where optimality is a maximum value of M which has an optimal error detection and correction capability, as well as a minimal code block length n. The values of n and M are driven by the Hamming distance d, the minimum distance one codeword is from all other codewords in the derived alphabet. There are numerous methods that can be applied to a search for the optimal alphabet, and discovery of the most efficient method would be of great academic interest.
