Career Summary

Biography

Raymond graduated with a PhD degree from the University of Melbourne, taught various undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the areas of computer science and information systems at Swinburne University of Technology for almost a decade before joining the University of Newcastle Australia in early 2013. Besides teaching, he has been actively pursuing research related to evolutionary game theory, optimisation, data analytics, and modelling of complex adaptive systems. He was the Editor-in-Chief of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Information, Knowledge, and Management (IJIKM) from 2011 to 2014. Currently, he is an Editor for the journal Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence (EAAI) and an Associate Editor for the IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine (IEEE CIM). He also served/is serving as Guest Editors for a number of reputable international journals such as the International Journal of Production Economics (IJPE) and European Journal of Operational Research (EJOR). He was the Vice Chair of the task force “Education” of IEEE Computational Intelligence Society’s Emergent Technology Technical Committee, and one of the Founding co-Chairs of the IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Production and Logistics Systems (CIPLS). To date, he has produced/co-authored over 90 refereed publications in the form of books, book chapters, journal articles and conference papers, among others.
