Career Summary

Biography

I commenced as an academic at the age of 40. After establishing, with John Rosenberg, the very successful and productive Persistent Systems Research Group at the University of Sydney, I left the group in 1995 to return to Newcastle for family reasons. I was then employed by the School of Management, UoN, on a series of short teaching contracts, until being appointed to a full-time position with FEBE in mid 1998. I established inter-disciplinary collaboration with groups in UoN (Mental Health) and QUT (Bioinformatics), achieving substantial results including an international patent. From 2002 I also became heavily involved in University administration as HoD and Assistant Dean, but also resumed work on my previous area of expertise, forming the Distributed Systems Research Group (DCRG) which I lead. This work recommenced in the context of continued collaboration with my colleagues in Mental Health Studies, and in Health Behaviour, and is creating infrastructure by which our research is able to flourish. Additionally, I am advancing the techniques and ideas on which I commenced work in the early 1990s (and on which I supervised Ph.D students who graduated in 1995 (X2), 1996, 1997, and 2005 respectively), applying them to grid and Internet-based distribution.

My more recent PhD student projects include: "A Framework to Support Long-Running Web Service Transaction" - graduated PhD in 2012; "Data Management and Query Processing for Semistructured and Structured Databases" - graduated PhD in 2011; "Advances in Cluster Editing: Linear FPT Kernels and Comparative Implementations" - graduated PhD in 2010; "A Software Engineering Process for BOI Multiagent Systems" - submitted PhD thesis 2013; and "Pedagogical-based Learning Object System to Support Self-regulated Learning of Computer Science" - graduated PhD in 2013. Current PhD students are working on projects entitled: "A Framework for Clinical Reasoning, Knowledge Acquisition, Retrieval and Synthesis in Psychiatry"; "Component-based Runtime Environment for Internet Applications"; "Reinforcement Learning in Hierarchical Multi-Agent Systems"; and "Modeling and Simulation of Insider Attacks Activities in Cloud Computing Systems"

One of the key areas of clinical decision making in the field of clinical medicine involves choosing the most appropriate treatment option for a given patient, out of many alternative treatment options. This paper introduces a model that is intuitive to clinicians for evaluating medication treatment options, and therefore has the advantage of engaging clinicians actively in a collaborative development of clinical Decision Support Systems (DSS). This paper also extends the previously introduced models ofmedical diagnostic reasoning, and case formulation (in psychiatry). Whilst the proposed model is already implemented as a DSS in psychiatry, it can also be applied in other branches of clinical medicine.

Background: Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability internationally. One of the three effective interventions in the acute phase of stroke care is thrombolytic therapy with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), if given within 4.5 hours of onset to appropriate cases of ischaemic stroke.Objectives: To test the effectiveness of a multi-component multidisciplinary collaborative approach compared to usual care as a strategy for increasing thrombolysis rates for all stroke patients at intervention hospitals, while maintaining accepted benchmarks for low rates of intracranial haemorrhage and high rates of functional outcomes for both groups at three months.Methods and design: A cluster randomised controlled trial of 20 hospitals across 3 Australian states with 2 groups: multi- component multidisciplinary collaborative intervention as the experimental group and usual care as the control group. The intervention is based on behavioural theory and analysis of the steps, roles and barriers relating to rapid assessment for thrombolysis eligibility; it involves a comprehensive range of strategies addressing individual-level and system-level change at each site. The primary outcome is the difference in tPA rates between the two groups post-intervention. The secondary outcome is the proportion of tPA treated patients in both groups with good functional outcomes (modified Rankin Score (mRS <2) and the proportion with intracranial haemorrhage (mRS =2), compared to international benchmarks.Discussion: TIPS will trial a comprehensive, multi-component and multidisciplinary collaborative approach to improving thrombolysis rates at multiple sites. The trial has the potential to identify methods for optimal care which can be implemented for stroke patients during the acute phase. Study findings will include barriers and solutions to effective thrombolysis implementation and trial outcomes will be published whether significant or not.Trial registration: Australian New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry: ACTRN12613000939796. © 2014 Paul et al.; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.

Schizophrenia is a highly heritable disorder. Genetic risk is conferred by a large number of alleles, including common alleles of small effect that might be detected by genome-wide association studies. Here we report a multi-stage schizophrenia genome-wide association study of up to 36,989 cases and 113,075 controls. We identify 128 independent associations spanning 108 conservatively defined loci that meet genome-wide significance, 83 of which have not been previously reported. Associations were enriched among genes expressed in brain, providing biological plausibility for the findings. Many findings have the potential to provide entirely new insights into aetiology, but associations at DRD2 and several genes involved in glutamatergic neurotransmission highlight molecules of known and potential therapeutic relevance to schizophrenia, and are consistent with leading pathophysiological hypotheses. Independent of genes expressed in brain, associations were enriched among genes expressed in tissues that have important roles in immunity, providing support for the speculated link between the immune system and schizophrenia. © 2014 Macmillan Publishers Limited.

Background Schizophrenia is associated with lower pre-morbid intelligence (IQ) in addition to (pre-morbid) cognitive decline. Both schizophrenia and IQ are highly heritable traits. Therefore, we hypothesized that genetic variants associated with schizophrenia, including copy number variants (CNVs) and a polygenic schizophrenia (risk) score (PSS), may influence intelligence. Method IQ was estimated with the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS). CNVs were determined from single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data using the QuantiSNP and PennCNV algorithms. For the PSS, odds ratios for genome-wide SNP data were calculated in a sample collected by the Psychiatric Genome-Wide Association Study (GWAS) Consortium (8690 schizophrenia patients and 11 831 controls). These were used to calculate individual PSSs in our independent sample of 350 schizophrenia patients and 322 healthy controls. Results Although significantly more genes were disrupted by deletions in schizophrenia patients compared to controls (p = 0.009), there was no effect of CNV measures on IQ. The PSS was associated with disease status (R 2 = 0.055, p = 2.1 × 10 -7) and with IQ in the entire sample (R 2 = 0.018, p = 0.0008) but the effect on IQ disappeared after correction for disease status. Conclusions Our data suggest that rare and common schizophrenia-associated variants do not explain the variation in IQ in healthy subjects or in schizophrenia patients. Thus, reductions in IQ in schizophrenia patients may be secondary to other processes related to schizophrenia risk. © Cambridge University Press 2013.

Persistent object stores provide uniform management of short-term and long-term objects. Such stores ensure the integrity of the data even after occurrence of a failure, by guaranteeing the existence of some previous self-consistent stable state at each point in time. Maintaining a consistent state of a persistent store necessitates recording of inter-object dependencies and checkpointing of each object together with all its dependent objects. Directed graphs may be used to describe such dependencies. In this paper we describe eager and lazy construction of dependency graphs. We then address operating system and hardware support for management of dependencies.

A modified case-based reasoning method is introduced aimed to fulfill the need for a triage tool that differentiates likely psychiatric diagnoses and associated risk level. Clinical cases are represented as a set of clinical features rated on a numerical scale according to level of severity. One standard case is used for each diagnostic category, represented as a vector denoting the expected severity of each clinical feature. A new case represented as another vector denoting the severity of observed clinical features in a patient is assessed against the standard cases. Measurement based on orthogonal vector projection was used as a clinically intuitive measurement of similarity. Using thirty different test cases representing six different diagnostic categories, this measure and alternative similarity measures consisting of cosine similarity and Euclidean distance were evaluated. Results indicated that orthogonal vector projection was superior to the other two methods in differentiating diagnoses and predicting severity.

This paper discusses the needs of medical researchers working in the area of patient-centred medicine, in particular their use of survey data in measuring patient opinions, needs, perceived quality of care received, and priorities of health service interventions. Until quite recently, collection of survey data has been either paper-based, or achieved using computer software that largely duplicated paper-based processes with limited additional functionality. The authors investigate the use of web-based technology to support collection of such data from patients, including experiences and observations on enhanced/additional functionality made possible by its adoption. A novel software design termed QuON is presented, together with examples of its capabilities and uses in current research projects. Copyright © 2014 SCITEPRESS - Science and Technology Publications.
