Emeritus Professor

About me

I was born in Hong Kong and trained/worked as a Marine Radio and Electronic Officer from 1972 to1978. I graduated with a B.Sc. Degree with First Class Honours in Maritime Studies (1981) and a Master of Engineering Degree in System Test Technology (1982) from the University of Wales. My PhD Degree was awarded by the University of Western Australia in 1994 with a thesis on the Applications of Artificial Intelligent Techniques to Electrical Power System Engineering under the supervision of the late Professor Kit Po Wong. I taught at the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Singapore Polytechnic (1982-1988), and at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Curtin University of Technology (1989-2003). I joined Murdoch University in 2003 and I was appointed as Emeritus Professor in 2015. In 2017, I was awarded an Honorary PhD Degree in Information Technology by Walailak University Thailand, in recognition of my contributions towards the development and advancement of their research and postgraduate programs. I have held positions as Academic Program Chair, Associate Dean of Research, Postgraduate Research Director and Director of the Center for Enterprise Collaborative in Innovative Systems. I have supervised over 30 postgraduate and doctoral students and I have published over 330 academic articles in international journals and conference proceedings in the areas of Neural Networks, Intelligent Systems, Computational Intelligence, Cybernetics, Electrical Power Systems, Image Processing, Data Mining, Machine Learning, Knowledge Management, Education and Web Technology. My contributions can be viewed at   MU.research-repository, ieee.Xplore, ResearchGate.net, scholar.google.com, and academic.research.microsoft.com. Since Retirement, I continue dedicate my time to supervise postgraduate students and my motto is “學海無涯” which means “Learning with no boundary”.

I have been a dedicated volunteer in the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) for over two decades. I have served in many positions in the executive committees of Technical Society Chapters, WA Section, Australia Council and R10 Ex-Com. I have been a member of the Board of Governors in the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetic Society (2010-2015) served as Chair of the IEEE New Initiative Committee (NIC), Conference Quality Committee (CQC), IEEE Technical Program Integrity Committee (TPIC) and currently as IEEE R10 Chair of Educational Activities Committee (2019-2020)

I am honored to have the support and vote of confidence from IEEE members in the Asia-Pacific Region Region (R10).
I shall perform my role as the R10 Director-Elect (2021-2022) and as Director (2023-2024), representing the region on the IEEE Board of Directors.
I look forward to serving IEEE members and the community for their best interests and benefits.


Teaching area

My appointment with Murdoch University only requires me to be involved with research and supervision activities as I have been released from teaching and administration duties.

I now dedicate my time to volunteering and in particular with IEEE. I maintain my interest in education, in particular the development and use of technology to stimulate and facilitate efficient teaching and learning.

Research areas

My research is in the design and development of innovative intelligent technologies and advanced techniques to solve practical problems. I have been working on computational intelligence techniques, data mining, machine learning and lately, deep learning, advanced human computer interfaces such as brain-machine-interface (BMI), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), wearable devices, and internet of things (IOT) for applications such as rehabilitation and advanced library system. I work closely with my collaborators in Murdoch and several overseas universities.

Current projects

My research have included Cybersecurity, Internet of Things, Intelligent Systems, Education Technology and Brain-Machine-Interface (BMI). I have also worked on a number of projects related to the Kingdom of Thailand and the Kingdom of Bhutan, where most of my doctoral students came from. This included rainfall prediction, recommendation systems for universities, Thai Websites content extraction and presentation, ancient Thai palm leaf manuscripts analysis, automated handwritten document processing, Virtual Experiential Learning (VEL) for Cognitive Load Reduction, Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), Cybersecurity, and, Security and Risk assessments. I am also active in guiding postgraduate research students to scope and assess their research projects within the constraints and requirements of their study.
