BRIEF BIO

I am a Reader and Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Computer Engineering in La Trobe University. I lead the Pervasive Computing Group at La Trobe, and have authored 'Context-Aware Pervasive Systems: Architectures for a New Breed of Applications' published by Auerbach (CRC Press), Dec 2006.

I have (co-)authored more than 240 research publications including 45 journal papers, 10 book chapters, and over 180 conference/workshop papers, with numerous work on context-aware computing, and mobile and pervasive computing. I have been on the program committee of numerous conferences/workshops in the area, including Pervasive'08 and Percom'10 (and 2011). My research has been published in journals such as IEEE Pervasive, Knowledge Engineering Review, Elsevier's Pervasive and Mobile Computing Journal, IEEE Transactions on SMC, IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems, Personal and Ubiquitous Computing, Future Generation Computer Systems, MONET, Journal of Systems and Software, Expert Systems and Appliations, Journal of Network and Computer Applications and Theory and Practice of Logic Programming. I have also published in leading conferences in the pervasive, middleware, and services computing areas including Percom (ERA ranking: A), International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing (ICSOC) (ERA ranking: A), Mobiquitous (ERA ranking A), HICSS (ERA ranking: A), and Middleware (ERA ranking: A).

I completed my PhD in 1998 at the University of Melbourne, and the BSc (Hons) in 1994 at the Australian National University winning a University Medal in Computer Science. I was an Honorary Associate of the Centre for Distributed Systems and Software Engineering, Monash University for several years (2006-2011).

or for more information ...

If you are wondering what pervasive computing is,

you can look up "youtube university" by watching videos on

pervasive computing,

ubiquitous computing,

ambient intelligence, and

context-aware computing.

or buy my book: Context-Aware Pervasive Systems: Architectures for a New Breed of Applications

You can get it from Amazon in the UK,

or Amazon in the US,

or Amazon in Japan,

or Amazon in Canada,

or Amazon in Germany.
