Brief Biosketch

My first 10 years in industry involved the design, development, deployment, support & governance of an extension to the world renowned COLOSSUS Expert System for handling bodily injury & workers compensation claims. Between 2000 & 2005, I assumed the roles of Chief Research Officer, Asia Pacific for CSC, Innovation Manager at Australian Mutual Provident & Maybank. I have published in, among others, Expert Systems With Applications, Knowledge-based Systems, and Information Processing and Management journals. My papers have twice won the Highly Commended category of the Emerald Literati Network Award for Excellence between 2008 & 2011.

In my academic capacities, I have designed and delivered Knowledge Management, Artificial Intelligence, Business Process Management, Portal, and MIS courses at the University of Sydney, University of Technology, Sydney, University of New South Wales, RMIT University, University of Kentucky, Stellenbosch University, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and City University of Hong Kong. I lead Asia’s only master degree in Knowledge Management which is delivered via blended learning. I received the High Impact Award 2008, finalist and winner of the Teaching and Learning Innovation Awards in 2009 and 2010 respectively at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

I have also consulted extensively for government departments and private organizations in Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, and Brunei.
