Biography:

I am, paraphrasing Bob McQueen, Colombian by birth and New Zealander by choice. I arrived in Auckland in 1992, worked as Information Systems Manager for three years and joined academia as a Lecturer in 1995 in the then Management Science and Information Systems (MSIS) Department at the University of Auckland. I completed my PhD in 1997 (third granted by MSIS and first in Information Systems) and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2000.  My last service position at Auckland was as Deputy Head of Department (Research). I left what had become the Information Systems and Operations Management (ISOM) department in 2009 and moved to Colombia to serve as Professor in the Faculty of Engineering and Director of Research and Innovation at Universidad Tecnologica de Bolivar (UTB) in 2010-2011. I joined AUT in February 2012 and was Head of Computer Sciences from Nov. 2013 to Oct. 2015.

While at Auckland I was a Visiting Researcher at Kent Ridge Digital Labs (National University of Singapore, July – Dec. 1998) and a Visiting Professor, School of Telecommunications Engineering of Barcelona (ETSETB), Technical University of Catalonia (UPC, Sept. 2005-March 2006).
