Professor of Software Engineering, School of Information Technology and
Pro Vice-Chancellor, ICT Innovation & Translation
Senior Principal Researcher with Data61.
The purpose of my current role is to provide leadership and co-ordinate a “one Deakin” approach to ICT, particularly focusing on positioning Deakin as the preferred University partner for innovative ICT R&D projects in Australia. This includes developing a cooperative ICT@Deakin brand for the University to continue its rise in research performance; significantly increase internal and external collaborative R&D relationships and projects, income and translational outcomes; enable diverse, high impact interdisciplinary research projects via ICT innovations; and assist in enhancing the ICT teaching and learning experience and employability outcomes, particularly in relation to exposure to industrial R&D projects and internships. This is very much a “works with” role collaborating and co-ordinating with a wide range of internal centres and schools. I liaise with and work closely with key University leaders, industry partners, and State- and Commonwealth Government-associated entities.
Until February 2016 I was at the Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia and was the Dean of the School of Software and Electrical Engineering and the Director of the large Research Centre Swinburne University Centre for Computing and Engineering Software Systems (SUCCESS). I was until mid-2013 the Head of Computer Science and Software Engineering at Swinburne and briefly Deputy Dean for the previous Faculty of ICT.
My teaching is mostly in the area of team projects, software requirements and design, software processes, distributed systems, and programming. My research is mostly in the area of software tools and techniques, software architecture, model-driven software engineering, visual languages, software security engineering, service-based and component-based systems and user interfaces. My work is generally pretty applied and I do consulting work with a range of companies. These have included, among many others, Thales Australia, CA Labs, XSol Ltd, Orion Health Ltd, Peace Software Ltd, and Whitecloud Systems Ltd.
I have been an academic for approximately 23 years and worked in the IT industry as a Programmer/Analyst and consultant. Positions have included:
I hold the BSc(Hons), MSc and PhD degrees, all in Computer Science, from the University of Auckland. I am a Fellow of Automated Software Engineering, Fellow of Engineers Australia, Member of the ACM and Member of the IEEE. I was president of COmputing Research and Education (CORE) for 2013 and 2014. I am currenrly on the ARC College of Experts and the New Zealand MBIE Smart Ideas and High Value Manufacturing and Services Panels. I was on the Mathematics, Information and Computing Sciences (MIC) ARC ERA 2012 Research Evaluation Committee, and previously on the New Zealand FRST Expert Review and Post-doctoral Fellowships panels.
I have taught a wide range of software engineering, computer science and information systems courses in my career. I have specialised in "project based learning", specifically project-based courses where students work in small-ish teams on a semester or term-long project. More...
I was honored to be awarded the 2014 IEEE Technical Council on Software Engineering Distinguished Education award.
Current projects include the Visual Wiki platform for knowledge engineering, Marama meta-tools and Software Process and Product Improvement projects. More...
You may also find some of my papers @ Swinburne Research Bank or Google Scholar or DBLP or MS Academic or Arnetminer or ACM Digital Library or IEEE Digital Library ...
I have given a number of talks over the years, some very specific; some very general. I will collect up some of these in PDF format (maybe even audio/podcast when time permits :-) ) and add off this link. More...
