Personal profile


Wynita is a Lecturer with the Department of Civil Engineering, and the Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering, at Monash University. Her research interests span intelligent transportation systems and smart city applications; vehicle-in-the-loop simulation; and mathematical control theory. After receiving her Ph.D. from the Australian National University, she joined the Hamilton Institute at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth as a postdoctoral research fellow; followed by University College Dublin as a research scientist. During this time, she collaborated with IBM Research – Ireland towards the development and testing of a context-aware, in-car reasoning system; and with Moxia in the development of a prototype charge wall for e-bike batteries.
