Trina is a Computer Scientist and the Academic Lead, Learning and Teaching for the School of Information Systems at QUT. Trina is the current President of the Australian Council of Deans of ICT (ACDICT) that aims to promote and advance ICT education, research and scholarship on behalf of Australian universities.

Previously, Trina was the Head of Information Technology at JCU across all campuses (Townsville, Cairns, Singapore and Brisbane).


Trina’s research interests span both Technology-based research and Learning and Teaching-based research.

Trina’s Technology-based research interests focus predominately on semantic technologies, sensor technologies, data and knowledge management, collective intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT). Semantic technologies (linked data) are a subset of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that enables the integration of knowledge, information and disparate data. She works predominantly in multi-disciplinary research projects that have included other disciplines such as Health Science, Archaeology, Marine and Environmental Science, Conservation Management, Aquaculture, AgTech, Economics, Business, among many others.

Trina’s current research projects include: semantic enablement of IoT and collective intelligence for more efficient water conservation resource management; data and AI-driven virtual reality environments; and combining text mining with semantic context for intelligent data extraction from the information found on the Web (current applications are in the mining and tourism sectors).

Trina’s Learning and Teaching-based research interests currently focus on three areas:

Academic integrity – Trina is presently working on a project in collaboration with University Newcastle, USC and QUT that aims to build student comprehension of academic integrity in computing degrees.

Longitudinal learning and authentic assessment – Trina is exploring how differing initiatives in longitudinal learning and authentic assessment in design thinking/studio curriculum compare between regional and metropole universities.

Active learning in Online Learning Environments – Trina is continuing to investigate best practices in integrating active-learning to engage online students to learn in both synchronous and asynchronous modes from previous projects she has led.
