Personal profile

Biography

A/Professor Rashina Hoda is the Associate Dean (Academic Development) in the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University, Melbourne. She is an award-winning researcher and an international expert in human-centred software engineering specialising in agile software development and grounded theory. Her research covers agile transformations, self-organising agile teams, agile project management, large-scale agile, and serious game design for 21st century skills. In 2017, Rashina was awarded a Distinguished Paper Award for her grounded theory of becoming agile at ICSE, the most prestigious software engineering conference.

Recently, she has been focusing on affective agile requirements engineering, responding to change, including pandemic programming - studying the impacts of Covid-19 on software professionals, and harnessing artificial intelligence to drive decision making in agile software engineering.

Rashina serves on the Review Board of the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, on the Advisory Board of the IEEE Software, and as Associate Editor for the Journal of Systems and Software. She also serves as the Program Co-chair for the International Conference on Agile Software Development (XP2020) and as the Social Media Co-chair for ICSE2021, Madrid.

Prior to joining Monash, Rashina was a Senior Lecturer at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. She completed her PhD at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand and a Bachelors of Science with Honours Distinction at Louisiana State University, USA. 

Almost all of Rashina's research is industry based. In a 2019 TEDx talk, she introduced the concept of an Agile Nation applying agile principles at the wider societal level to solve national and global challenges. She enjoys presenting her research to industry and academic alike.
