Biography

Research themes: Services, Health, Transport

Research discipline: Information Systems

Research area:

  • User-centred annotation and summarisation of multimedia information. This involves designing and developing frameworks and algorithms to automatically extract emerging topics from web articles, and social media (such as blogs and twitters) and use them to tag and summarize video contents based on users’ interests. The novelty of our approach is using generic features such as key entities and sentiment analysis. A cross-disciplinary research team, involving image and video processing, machine learning, text and social media mining, face recognition, and facial expression recognition conduct this project.
  • Delivering adaptive and optimized video quality for mobile and emerging platforms. The main goal is to achieve optimal users’ visual experience, particularly when the network bandwidth is limited. The novelty in our approach lies on the real-time calculation of “region-of-interests” and the adoption of cutting-edge scalable video encoding. This project incorporates multiple mobile platforms, including a wide range of emerging smart phones, and tablets, which are provided by the Mobile Innovation Lab resources.
  • Applying principles of interaction design and cognitive science for delivery of smart services in emerging platforms. Next generation mobile devices will become the main platform for information and service delivery. My research conducts user studies to design, develop, and test innovative applications, such as context-aware mobile applications, gamification of mobile apps, and

Teaching

Teaching discipline: Information Systems.

I currently coordinate and teach in the area of mobile computing, particularly: INB and INN 345 (Mobile Devices), INB and INN 348 (Mobile Application Development). Strong nexus of research-teaching-corporate engagement is the aim of my teaching/learning.

Previously (since 2004), I have taught a wide-range of courses in IT, including: Mobile App. Developments, Emerging Technologies, Interaction Design, Web Development, Advanced Multimedia Systems, Multimedia Systems, Introduction to Databases, Professional Studies, Business Systems Analysis, and ICT life cycle.

My teaching survey is always above 4.5 (out of 5), particularly on “the teacher has a good manner … friendly, helpful, enthusiastic, and professional” throughout 2004 to 2010. My teaching excellence has been awarded with Vice Chancellor Performance awards and Faculty’s Excellence in Teaching awards.

Experience

I had established and currently leading Mobile Innovation Lab (MILAB) since 2010.

MILAB aims to shape the future of mobile and multimedia computing, with a strong focus on research and development, teaching, and industry collaborations around collaborative research projects, consulting, and professional education (CPE) courses.

I have lead the mobile research and development for three Cooperative Research Centres (CRC): CRC Smart Services (smart video optimisation for mobile and multi-channel delivery), CRC Rail Innovation (mobile technologies for delivering real-time transit information and mobile payment), and CRC Young and Well (mobile tools for promoting health in young people, including awareness, treatment and prevention). Dian has published over 88 academic publications in mobile multimedia field, and is the current coordinator of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) courses in mobile computing series, as well as the undergraduate and postgraduate courses in “introduction to mobile computing” and “mobile apps design and development”, enrolled by more than 60 students each semester. Dian plays a key role in the development of creative ideas and planning, and in later stages managing the developers and ensuring quality is maintained. He also uses his current collaborations and networks to deliver important (value-adding) components in new projects.

 

I have lead the research, design, and development of mobile apps for the Frog Field Guide (in collaboration with Australian Museum), Secret SLQ (in collaboration with Reading Room and SLQ); and these apps were finalist of Australian Mobile Awards 2012 in the Education category. We also built a gamified university orientation iPhone App for QUT.
