Senior Lecturer, Information Technology

Information Technology D



Mt Helen Campus, Online


Kathleen Keogh’s current research involves intelligent software agents, with particular emphasis on agents that are designed based on beliefs, desires, goals and intentions..

Kathleen is exploring how agents can work together in organisations, in particular when the situation demands that agents improvise based on plans provided at design time. The work is motivated by emergency management simulations where people could benefit from intelligent agents behaving like people or working with people.

Kathleen is Lecturer in information technology at Federation University Australia and coordinator of the IT professional practice and cloud and enterprise computing programs. She also manages the faculty partnership with IBM. She has completed her PHD at the University of Melbourne, which proposes a meta-model for designing and creating multi-agent system organisations capable of improvisation and coordination at run time.
