Biography

Alan Dorin is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Information Technology, Monash University. He researches the ways in which technology assists discovery in the ecological sciences and in human creativity. Through his work in Artificial Life and ecological simulation, Alan explores the key attributes of organisms that enable them to live in complex environments. This knowledge is used to improve agriculture and horticulture, and to assist us in maintaining natural ecosystems. Alan promotes an understanding of the relationships between technology and human endeavour by nurturing curiosity and encouraging students to form their own bridges between disciplines.
