School of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering

Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology


Braden Phillips is an associate professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Deputy Dean of Learning and Teaching for the Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences. He is a member of the Adelaide Education Academy and the Diversity and Inclusion in Teaching community of practice.

Braden’s discipline expertise is in the areas of digital microelectronics and computer engineering. He has publlished original research on computer arithmetic, new computing architectures for cognitive computing, and high level synthesis of digital logic.

In education practice and scholarship, Braden's focus is currently on on active learning in large classes, authentic and scalable assessment for learning, inclusive groupwork, and on curriculum that is backwards by design and just in time.

Prior to the completion of his PhD thesis, ’An Optimised Implementation of Public Key Cryptography for Smart Card Processors’, Braden worked as a process control engineer and was a founding partner in Current Dynamics, an electronic hardware design venture. He was a lecturer at Cardiff University in South Wales for 2 years before returning to the University of Adelaide in 2002.
