Personal profile


I have a PhD from the University of Cambridge and a BSc and Masters from the University of Western Australia. I have held academic positions at the University of Essex, UK, SRI Cambridge and the University of WA.  I am current Head of Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering at UWA.


My research on sensor networks addresses practical and theoretical challenges for achieving end-to-end reliability of sensor networks given
the stringent resource constraints of these systems.
I have developed theoretical models, built and designed in-field applications and designed new protocols. My research results have had impact for understanding built and natural environments through applications in smart water metering, rammed earth buildings, public transport and environmental monitoring of Australian bushland.
