About Hao Shi

Associate Professor Hao Shi enjoys the opportunity to explore new and emerging research areas that emphasise real industry applications. She believes that involvement in research is an integral part of the teaching process, particularly in a tertiary environment. Together with colleagues, she was awarded a competitive and prestigious ARC e-Research Grant for 'Peer-to-Peer Collaborative Research Network for Sharing and Managing Digital Legal Information'. As one of the Chief Investigators, she successfully completed the development of the P2P Research Network prototype to facilitate the legal users and applications.

Hao also successfully mapped geographical health data using Google Maps. The collaborative project with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Tasmania, was to present LGA-based mortality rates for circulatory diseases on Google Maps. The immediate objective was to investigate the potential of Google Maps and to provide an insight for future development for other health data such as mortality, hospitalisations and notifiable infectious diseases, which has wide implications in e-health research.

She introduced the concepts of ‘Smart Living’ to her postgraduate students as early as 2005. One area is focused on ‘Smart Remote Control’, which allows a user anywhere in the world to remotely control electronic devices such as door, lighting, and TV. Another area is ‘Automatic Information Exchange via wireless technology’. It aims to automatically update information from any wireless-enabled device to a network server. It is expected that the new concepts may find wide applications in the near future with increasing popularity of Smartphones and Artificial Intelligence.

Hao has been actively engaged in R&D and external consultancy activities. She is currently working on a pilot study on real-time monitoring of Metro tunnel performance using wireless sensors. Her research interests include:

  • wireless and mobile communications
  • location-based applications
  • image processing and Artificial Intelligence
  • Internet technologies and smart living.
