Biography

Christopher is responsible for establishing and implementation an eResearch program of work from eSolutions at Deakin University. The program of work will ensure researchers at Deakin University are able to transition to the microscope of the 21st century – which really means empowering people to deal with digital information (i.e. data).

Christopher’s role involves working with eSolutions (central ICT), Deakin University Library and Deakin Research (the research office) to ensure that a coherent and consistent approach is followed. An important aspect of his role is collaborating with external partners at the state and national level to build local and global collaboration opportunities.

Christopher has extensive research administration experience with Deakin Research, developing many workflow productivity tools to streamline and simplify administration tasks relating to research. He has also been heavily involved in government reporting of research outcomes, including 2 ERA rounds.

Christopher’s research background is in parallel and distributed systems, in particular applied research around an automated parallelisation tool. His professional background includes collaboration with colleagues through the Collaborating Research Administrators Group (CRAG) which drove a lot of successful discussion and outcomes prior to the first ERA submissions.
