Biography

I completed my PhD on The use of aggregation functions in decision making under the supervision of Dr. Gleb Beliakov at Deakin University in 2010.  Since then I have held a Lecturing position in the School of Information Technology.  

Before undertaking my PhD, I had completed a double degree in education and arts and so I have maintained a strong focus on reflective teaching practices.  I was recognised with the Deakin University Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2013.

My research interests to date have included aggregation functions, fuzzy sets, group decision making and consensus, as well as indices used in ecology.
