Wenny Rahayu is currently the Head of Department of Computer Science and Computer Engineering at La Trobe University in Melbourne Australia.Prior to this appointment, she taught computing at Swinburne University, and held an industry position. She received a PhD in Computer Science from La Trobe university in 2000. Her PhD thesis in the area of Object-Relational Databases has been awarded the Best PhD Thesis 2001 by the Computer Science Association Australia (CORE).
In 2003, she has been awarded the Dean's Award for excellence in teaching. She has been involved in the curriculum development process of the Postgraduate by coursework degrees (2004-2005), undergraduate degree restructuring in the department especially in relation to Database and Information System stream (2006-2007), and the development of double-degree programs in Business, and Health Information Management. She is currently the Director of Academic Studies in the department.
The main focus of her research is the integration and consolidation of heterogeneous data and systems to support a collaborative environment within a highly data-rich environment. To date, she has been the principle investigator or one of the chief investigators of 2 ARC Linkages, large industry collaboration grants, international grants (Japan JSPS and Australia Indonesia AIGRP), International standard bodies such as Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), VPAC (Victoria Partnership for Advanced Computing), and the AAS (Australia Academy of Science).
In the last 10 years, she has published two authored books, three edited books and more than 100 research papers in international journals and proceedings. She has supervised to completion 10 PhDs, around 30 Honours, and 10 masters students.
