About Me

William is a teaching professor in mathematics education and computing at CQUniversity. He has made a profound impact on students learning outcomes and experience in mathematics for hundreds of engineering and education students at CQUniversity since 2013. This includes writing three brand-new mathematics textbooks published by Pearson since 2014, which have been liked by students. His effort on teaching mathematics subjects has been appreciated by students, which has brought him multiple Student Voice Commendation Awards since 2014. His excellence in education has been recognized nationally by Australian Research Council (ARC) as an ARC nominated Expert Peer Reviewer in STEM Education in the 2018 Excellence in Research of Australia (ERA) assessment. He was also an External Expert of Tertiary Education Quality & Standards Agency (TEQSA) of Australia (2017-2019).

His research in modelling, simulation and applied computation is also internationally recognized through his 100+ publications, leadership roles in international conferences, editorship of special issues in international journals, including Frontiers in Genetics, IEEE Access, International Journal of Computational Intelligence Systems, Mathematical Problems in Engineering.

William received his PhD from The University of Western Australia in 1999. He has been a faculty member at Edith Cowan University (2001-2007) and Central Queensland University (2007-). He is a member of IEEE and an Accredited Member of AustMS.
