College of Science and Engineering
My earlier career roles have seen me covering a broad range of experiences, including:
Following a number of years in the commercial and consulting world, my primary research interests have developed through the areas of e-business, strategic management with an IT focus, and in more recent times the security associated with those areas. Accordingly, the areas of management of IT and Information Security, governance, and organisational culture are key focus segments.
With an ongoing interest in teaching and education, a second field of research interest is in the educational applications of ICT, looking for novel ways of better utilising contemporary technologies for both teaching delivery and student learning.
B.Sc., Dip.T., Dip.Acc., PhD, MACS(Snr)
Most Recent Past Teaching and Topic Coordination included
COMP3721 - Enterprise Information Security, and
COMP7701 - Advanced Enterprise Security
Information Security models, strategies, and implementations, particularly for the emerging entry level small and medium enterprise where barriers of finances, resources, and logistics pose significant hurdles to becoming successful e-business participants. Governance, organisational culture, strategic management of information security, and integration/assimilation throughout an enterprise are focus issues and a continuing interest.
The other primary theme of research interest is in the area of the strategic initiatives and implementation models associated with ICT and Education, particularly higher education and secondary or post-secondary education. Two specific areas that have emerged as significant priorities are Quality, both in the quality of course offerings by universities and the quality of course delivery, and consideration of the Change Management needed to accommodate the new ways that students learn.
