Short biography

Manzur Murshed received a B.Sc. Engineering (Hons) degree in computer science and engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Dhaka in 1994 and a PhD degree in computer science from the Australian National University (ANU), Canberra in 1999. He also completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Graduate Teaching from ANU in 1997. Currently, he is a Professor of Information Technology and Associate Dean (Research) at the School of Science, Engineering and Information Technology. He is also the Research Director of the Centre for Multimedia Computing, Communications, and Artificial Intelligence Research and leading the Research Priority Area on Information Forensics and Security at Federation University Australia. Previously, he served Federation University as a Robert HT Smith Professor and Personal Chair in Information Technology from 2014 to 2018 and Monash University as the Head of Gippsland School of Information Technology from 2007 to 2013. His research interests include Image/video processing; Machine learning; Big Data analytics; Computational mathematics; Wireless communications; Distributed & Cloud computing; and Security & privacy. He has so far published 230+ refereed research papers with 4,300+ citations (Google Scholar) and h-index 23 & i10-index 62. In Information and Computing Sciences (FoR 08), he has a field weighted citations impact (FWCI) of 2.20 (Web of Science), i.e., well above world standard (2.2 times the world benchmark). He has received $5.1m competitive research funding, including six Federal Government grants—four Discovery Projects (DP) grants in DP’06, DP’10, DP’13, and DP’19 rounds, and a Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment, and Facilities (LIEF) grant in LIEF’18 round from the Australian Research Council (ARC), and an Education Integration Project (EIP) grant in EIP’11 round from the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT). He has recently been appointed to the ARC College of Experts 2020–2022.

Prof Murshed has successfully supervised 25 PhD and 3 MPhil students to completion, and he is currently supervising 4 PhD students.
