About

Nik Nailah Abdullah is a Lecturer attached to the School of Information Technology at Monash University Malaysia. She graduated from the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Skudai, Malaysia in 2000 with Honours in Computer Science. She had her postgraduate education at the LIRMM (Laboratoire d'Informatique, de Robotique et de Microélectronique de Montpellier), France and obtained her DEA (French Masters Degree equivalent) and Doctor in Philosophy degree with Distinction in Informatics from Université Montpellier II Sciences et Techniques du Languedoc in 2002 and 2006 respectively. Her main research interests are in the design of multi-agent communication language specification and modeling, cognition modeling of communication for tool design for medical informatics.

 

She worked at GRACE Center (Center for Global Research in Advanced Software Science and Engineering), Tokyo Japan (from 2009-2011) as a Researcher and at Mimos Berhad, Malaysia as Senior Researcher (from 2012- 2013) in the Product Development and System Integration Cluster. She has given numerous invited international talks on her research including ‘Technovisionaire’ speaker for the opening of the Year of Creativity Milano officiated by President Filippo Penati, in 2009, Google Tech Talk speaker at Google Mountain View, California in 2008. She was also nominated as one of the three finalists for the "The Technovisionarie"  BlackBerry¨ “Women and Technology Award” associated by IFIP in 2008.
