Areas of Expertise

I personally believe that I bring (i) strong transdisciplinairy complex systems and computational social science research as an individual researcher; (ii) experience in cross fertilization of complex systems research approach with other disciplines such as Medicine, Public Health, Clinical Infectious Diseases, Physical, Life and Agricultural Sciences, and Business and Economics; (iii) proven track record of successful development and implementation of multidisciplinary undergraduate and postgraduate coursework programs as well as success in developing and implementing combined degrees with Information Science, Engineering, Commerce, Public Health and Agricultural sciences; and, (iv) significant local and international research partnerships with leading universities and industry contact as well as success in supporting fundraising initiatives.

My research focuses on understanding resilience, robustness, accuracy and precision of information flow in organisational, community and engineered complex systems. I have been investigating the functioning and robustness of hierarchical structures and potential problem leading to disruption or delay in the adaptation of behaviours for optimal functioning. I consider the examination of feedback systems leading to effectiveness and efficiency in learning, correcting or intervention to changed behaviour an important step towards understanding performance outcome of different networks in social, biological, living and organizational systems. I am fascinated by the complexity of interactions of different macro and micro structures which could lead to positive, negative or improved outcome in different types of systems and sub systems.

Currently, I am exploring effects of social networks and technology in supporting communication flow during crisis, coordinated interventions and delivery of health care and sociology of health, coordination of public health interventions, social networks in allied health service learning, effects of social networks in the delivery of nutritional health outcome. I have also been exploring social media analytics and social networks to explore disaster/crisis management and understanding resilience for dealing with disasters related to flood, fire, tsunami, disease outbreaks from food, zoonotic diseases and other man made and bio related security preparedness and response. My work over the past 10 years have evolved to be transdisciplinary where I begin to find links with social, biological, life and computational sciences and its application in exploring robustness, accuracy and precision of information flow problem in organising systems so that underlying innovation process and learning networks can be explored empirically.

Awards

During my tenure as Associate Dean and Sub Dean postgraduate studies from 2006-2012, I provided transformational leadership and operational support in the establishment of the Graduate School of Engineering and IT of the University of Sydney, its educational programs as well as administrative procedures. The following successful programs are result of my strategic and operational leadership: PhD program in Complex Systems with 10 PhD completions, Master of IT and Master of IT Management, Master of Engineering Studies (MES) and faculty-wide Master of Engineering (ME), a Faculty-wide 3 year Master of Professional Engineering (MPE) and Project Management and Leadership. Since 2006 to November 2013, I also served as Program Director, Head of Project Management Program, Deputy Head of School, Sub Dean and Associate Dean for the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies for which I have provided transformational leadership and change for the Faculty of Engineering and IT at the University of Sydney.

I have secured more than AU$10M in competitively research funding (2013 EU FP 7 4.5m Euro, 2013 $1.325m NHMRC-National Medical and Health Research Council Australia, $499k ARC Discovery, $720k CRC-Commonwealth Research Centre for Financial Markets, $320K CRC Bushfire, and $1.25m ARDA Advanced Research Development Agency in the US).

I am the founding Editor-in-Chief Springer transdisciplinary International Journal entitled Crisis Communications, which was launched recently with a world renowned international editorial and advisory board. I have published 180 peer reviewed research articles and papers in progress from which 84 papers in major international peer reviewed journals, 75 in peer reviewed international conferences, and 19 peer reviewed book chapters and 2 books. His publications appeared in journals in disciplines ranging from information sciences, computational science, knowledge management, decision support, behavioral sciences, network science, applied mathematics, statistical mechanics, environmental science, engineering management, complexity, physics, medicine and public health.

I have been involved in designing and teaching organisational information systems/technology related courses for undergraduate, honours and also for the postgraduate level since 1995. I have been involved in designing and delivery of telecommunications management and policy related courses for the undergraduate and postgraduate program in Information and Communications Technology. I also designed and taught courses such as Systems Analysis and Design, Management Information Systems, Strategic Information Systems and Information Science Research Methods for undergraduate and postgraduate program for Basser Department of Computer Science of the University of Sydney during 1999, 2000 and 2001. Fall 2001 to Spring 2004, I designed and taught undergraduate, graduate and PhD level courses at the School of Information Studies of Syracuse University New York. I taught courses such as Applications of Information Systems, Research Methods, Knowledge Management, Management of Information Systems Project, Systems Analysis and Practice, and Doctoral seminar in Information Management. These courses are offered for both on campus and also for the distance students. I have developed skills in delivery of graduate level courses in distance mode through WebCT or other online platform. I also taught Project Management, Research Methods, Management of IT Innovations for both the undergraduate and postgraduate program at the School of IT of the University of Sydney. I further served as a PhD dissertation committee members for 5 PhD students at Syracuse University. At the University of Sydney, I supervised 8 students at honours level and 10 PhD students completed their dissertation under my supervision.
