When I joined Monash as Dean of the Faculty of IT, I was looking for a place where I could explore big ideas – and implement them quickly.

As the largest university in Australia, you can do things at Monash that you simply can't do anywhere else.

Embedding an interdisciplinary ethos in all we do, our projects are already having a positive social impact on the world.

It's a really exciting time for the field of IT, as no other discipline is having such a fundamental effect on society at this point in history.

There's a world of opportunity here at Monash.

With many projects always on the go, we're currently developing IT to:

  • Enhance law enforcement
