Liming Zhu – Data61
Liming Zhu leads the Software and Computational Systems Research Program (one of the four programs) at Data61, CSIRO. The research program has 200+ people innovating in the following (but not limited to) research areas: big data analytics infrastructure, computational and simulation sciences platforms (including verticals such as image processing and biological data visualisation, molecular and material modelling), data modelling, data integration, data platforms, visual analytics, trustworthy systems, distributed systems, business process management, legal informatics/regulation technology, provenance, behaviour analytics, blockchains, software ecosystems, software engineering/architecture, DevOps and cybersecurity.
Data61 is part of The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and Australia’s data/ICT innovation hub. Data61 was formed bringing together CSIRO’s Digital Productivity team and National ICT Australia (NICTA).
Liming is also a conjoint full professor at School of Computer Science and Engineering, University of New South Wales. He teaches software architecture courses and supervise PhD students at UNSW. He has supervised 7 PhDs to completion as the primary supervisor. His personal research interests include: software architecture in enterprise systems and embedded systems, dependable and secure distributed systems, DevOps, SecDevOps and continuous deployment, (big) data analytics infrastructure, data analytics pipelines and data provenance, data platforms, blockchain-driven systems, software engineering for machine-learning based systems, software ecosystems, multi-sided platforms and Ultra-Large-Scale systems, service/cloud engineering and RESTful services, Model Driven Development(MDD), business process management, system and software development processes and methodologies, empirical methods in software engineering
