Zoe Ellen Brain BSc,
Welcome to Zoe Brain's Home Page !
I'm a PhD candidate, at the Dept of Computer Science
the ANU Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology (FEIT).
I'm currently researching improvements in Software
Methodologies, especially applied to embedded systems in Cars. Trying
to find ways of doing things Better, Cheaper, Faster, and Safer too.
That's me on the left, with the Engineering model of Fedsat.
I headed the on-board computer development team for it in
I first wrote some software to "help" my Father back in
1966, a few lines of FORTRAN II. After graduating from Sydney Uni in
1981, most of my career has been in Defence or Aerospace
areas, with occasional forays into Teaching, Computer Forensics,
Computer control of Laser Therapeutic
Devices, Open Source E-Voting and other high-integrity systems.
Now after doing a Master's part-time, I'm back at
fulltime study, after a break of 25 years.
I tutor for Comp
3110 and Comp 6311 - Software Analysis and Design
I'm available at Room 320 of the Computer Science and Information
