Monash University welcomes world-renowned expert in constraint programming Professor Peter Stuckey to the Faculty of Information Technology (FIT).
Professor Peter Stuckey joins FIT to work alongside some of Australia’s leading data scientists to research and develop next-generation technology to help solve some of the worlds complex
Before joining FIT, he was Professor at The University of Melbourne (UoM) in the School of Computing and Information Systems, Project Leader at NICTA Victoria Research Laboratory UoM, and held a similar role at CSIRO’s Data61.
His pioneering work includes the development of the semantics for one of the earliest systems in constraint programming to co-authoring one of the first constraint logic programming systems CLP(R). He also wrote the first textbook on constraint programming, Programming with Constraints: An Introduction (MIT Press, 1998).
He has worked on many
In 2010 Professor Stuckey was awarded the Google Australia Eureka Prize for Innovation in Computer Science and the 2010 University of Melbourne Woodward Medal for Science and Technology for best publications in Science and Technology across the university. In 2009 he was
Professor Stuckey received his Bachelor degree and
While his research focuses on discrete
Professor Stuckey’s expertise will be invaluable for advancing research in constraint programming and teaching excellence in the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash.
