Brief profile

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 220 research publications including 40 journal papers, 10 book chapters, and over 150 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, MONET, Future Generation Computer Systems, Journal of Systems and Software, and Theory and Practice of Logic Programming. I have also published in leading conferences in the pervasive, middleware, and services computing areas including Percom (CORE ranking: A), International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing (ICSOC) (CORE ranking: A), HICSS (CORE ranking: A), and Middleware (CORE ranking: A).
