He also lectured at the Software Technology Department of De La Salle University in Manila prior to moving to Australia in 1999.
Jeff has conducted research broadly in distributed computing as well as information integration. His grants at Monash University include work on authentication systems for computational grids and virtual learning environments. He has published in e-Science, Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience, Journal of Grid Computing and a few conferences in similar areas. His PhD focused on information integration through metamodels and ontologies, and his Masters thesis was on load balancing for distributed systems.
Jeff currently works with the Infrastructure Systems and Technologies team of IBM Research - Australia, and continues to collaborate with Monash University on network security. He continues to be a member of the program committes for IEEE eScience and IIWAS.
