Personal profile


I am the Senior Deputy Dean for the Faculty of Information Technology and a Professor of Software Engineering at Monash University. 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, Certified Professional Engineer, Engineering Executive, Member of the ACM and Senior Member of the IEEE.
I took up my current role at the beginning of February 2018. I am 2IC to the Executive Dean, Faculty of IT. I work with the Dean, Faculty Manager, Deputy Deans, Associate Deans and others to help lead and manage the Faculty, including people development and management, strategic planning, operations, finances, research and teaching leadership, engagement, … 

Until February 2018 I was Pro Vice-Chancellor ICT Innovation and Translation at Deakin University and an Alfred Deakin Professor. I provided strategic leadership of ICT research across the university with an emphasis on building collaborative teams across groups and disciplines, building teams to tackle larger problems and working with diverse stakeholders and partners on various externally funded projects. Before that 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 previously the Head of Computer Science and Software Engineering  at Swinburne and briefly Deputy Dean for the previous Faculty of ICT. Before coming to Australia at the end of 2009 I was Head of Department for Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. From 2014-2017 I was also a Senior Principal Researcher with Data61. 

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, Unisono, Mailguard, Thales Australia, CA Labs, XSol Ltd, Orion Health Ltd, Peace Software Ltd, and Whitecloud Systems Ltd.
