Research Proposal and Methods.
I have been working in an academic position in Computer Science discipline since 2002 working Computer science related research in the area of Agriculture, Medical, Education and Tourism based industries. My focus is on the application of these technologies to solve real world problems.
Before joining ECU, I worked as analyst programmer on a number of projects for WA state government before joining Edith Cowan University. I also have previously owned a computer software consultancy company before joining Edith Cowan University.
I have worked for a number of years as agricultural research scientist with the Western Australian Government on a number of Grain industry related projects. I also have worked at a number of universities in Western Australia and Queensland as a lecturer and tutor in both computing, agricultural and biological sciences.
