I completed my PhD on Supporting Blended Learning in an E-Learning Environment at Deakin University under the supervision of Professor Wanlei Zhou in 2008. In 2009 I commenced my academic position Lecturing in the School of Information Technology.  I was recognized in 2016 with the Deakin University Vice Chancellors Award for Teaching Excellence.

From my work in my PhD studies I have always been intrigued by educational technology. As academic I am always looking for new ways to incorporate digital technology into the classroom as a means of improving student engagement.
