I have engaged in different activities with various organisations in the following areas:

  1. Software Enginering for Analytics and AI Systems: the provision of efficient software services for Big Data Analysis has enormous socio-economic benefits for many companies in different sectors
  2. Analytics for Business and Social Sciences: addressing the fact that big data analysis in Business and Social Sciences is mainly driven by non-IT specialists analysing vast amounts of ad-hoc data from different sources such as Web logs, network traffic messages, health sensors and financial reports means that work in areas as diverse as IoT, Health, Economics and Social science is important
  3. FinTech: initiating projects in areas that would be considered too high risk for any start-e.g. developing innovative products that are not necessarily for-profit, creating open data repositories, financial planning tools, personalized banking hubs, dealing with educational issues, developing products for financial literacy and encouraging financial inclusion in a way that would benefit the entire society and encouraging openness, transparency and compliance with rules and regulation.

 

My Research Supervision

Large scale analysis of business information (Joint project with UNSW School of Management)

My Teaching

  • I am recognized as one of the few people with a broad knowledge of software engineering, encompassing not only the technical aspects but also the management aspects (30 years of teaching experience equally distributed between Engineering and Business faculties). I have also experience in developing software both as part of research and consulting activities.
  • I am a champion of multidisciplinary activity-based learning through workshops and software based activities performed both in-person and on-line
  • Many software products developed as a result of research projects have been used to support teaching activities at different levels (workshops, specialised courses for PhD students and Honours projects).
  • I have been a pioneer in developing new teaching material at the junction between the area of IT and Finance.
