Overview


Hoa Khanh Dam is an Associate Professor in the School of Computing and Information Technology, University of Wollongong (UOW) in Australia. He is Associate Director for the Decision System Lab at UOW, heading its Software Engineering Analytics research program. His research interests lie primarily in the intersection of software engineering, business process management and service-oriented computing, focusing on such areas as software engineering analytics, process analytics and service analytics. He holds PhD and Master degrees in Computer Science from RMIT University, and Bachelor of Computer Science degree from the University of Melbourne in Australia. His research has won multiple Best Paper Awards (at WICSA, APCCM, and ASWEC) and ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award (at MSR). His work has been published in the top venues in software engineering journals (IEEE TSE, JSS, EMSE) and conferences (ICSE, ASE, FSE), AI/intelligent agents (AAMAS, JAAMAS), and service-oriented computing (ICSOC, CaiSE, BPM). He has served as Program Chair, Organization Chair, Guest Editor, Journal Editorial Board, Steering Committee and (Senior) Program Committees for various international conferences and journals in his areas of expertise. Prior to his academic career, he spent a number of years in the industry at various positions, including technical architect, project manager and software engineer.

He has been teaching Software Engineering at UOW since 2009 and serves as a Course Director for the Bachelor of Computer Science degree. He had also spent some time (2003 - 2005) teaching Software Engineering at RMIT University in Vietnam.
