About Me

For bios/photos for talks, visit here.

I lead the Software and Computational Systems Research Program (one of the four programs) at Data61, CSIROThe research program has 200+ people innovating in the following (but not limited to) research areas: big data analytics infrastructure, computational and simulation sciences platforms (including verticals such as medical imaging, satellite images and biological data visualisation), data modelling, data integration, data platforms, visual analytics, trustworthy systems, distributed systems, business process management, legal informatics/regulation technology, provenance, behaviour analytics, blockchains, software ecosystems, software engineering/architecture, DevOps and cybersecurity. 

Data61 is part of The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and Australia's data/ICT innovation hub. Data61 was formed bringing together CSIRO's Digital Productivity team and National ICT Australia (NICTA).

I am also a conjoint full professor at School of Computer Science and Engineering, University of New South Wales. I teach software architecture courses and supervise PhD students at UNSW. I have supervised more than a dozen PhDs as the primary supervisor. My personal research interests include:

  • software architecture in enterprise systems and embedded systems
  • dependable and secure distributed systems 
  • DevOps, SecDevOps and continuous deployment 
  • (big) data analytics infrastructure, data analytics pipelines and data provenance
  • data platforms
  • blockchain-driven systems
  • software engineering for machine-learning based systems 
  • software ecosystems, multi-sided platforms and Ultra-Large-Scale systems
  • service/cloud engineering and RESTful services
  • Model Driven Development(MDD)
  • business process management
  • system and software development processes and methodologies
  • empirical methods in software engineering
