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"
