Biography

Short bio: Professor Marcello La Rosa is the Academic Director for corporate programs and partnerships at the Information Systems School of the Queensland University of Technology. He is also a Principal Researcher in the Software Systems Research Group of NICTA. His research interests span different areas in the field of Business Process Management (BPM), from process modelling and consolidation to process mining and automation. Marcello published over 80 refereed papers on BPM-related topics including papers in top journals such as ACM TOSEM, Formal Aspects of Computing and Information Systems, and received the best paper award at the Int. Conference on BPM in 2013. He leads the Apromore initiative – a strategic collaboration between various universities for the development of an advanced process model repository which brings together, for the first time, the areas of process mining and management of process model collections. In his capacity of Academic Director for corporate programs and partnerships for his school, Marcello coordinates QUT’s professional training program on BPM (BPM Training). He has taught process management to students and practitioners in Australia for over eight years. Based on this experience, he co-authored “Fundamentals of Business Process Management” – the first, comprehensive textbook on BPM, which has influenced the curriculum of over 100 universities in the world. Using this book, he has recently co-developed a MOOC on BPM through QUT’s MOOC platform. More information on him can be found here.
