Dr Claudia Szabo

Associate Dean - Diversity & Inclusion

School of Computer Science

Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


My main research interests lie in the area of complex systems and their practical applications to domains such as biology, social networks, and Defence. I lead the Complex Systems program within the Centre for Distributed and Intelligent Technologies. My education research interests lie in the areas of curriculum design, cognitive load theories, and software engineering best practices.

Interested in a PhD or master? Read more detailed descriptions of topics in my profile.

Two critical questions remain when thinking about applying complex systems theories to specific application domains:

  1. How can we engineer specific emergent properties in a complex systems of systems?
  2. How do we design systems that reap the benefits of self-organisation? Once these systems are designed and prototyped, how do we measure the impact and benefit of self-organisation? 
    1. Beyond self-organisation, another interesting property is adaptability and the same questions above apply to it as well.

Interested in a PhD or Master in this topic? Please send me an email with your CV, transcripts, and a 2-page proposal.
