Biography

Simi graduated with B.Sc. first class followed by Master of Statictics, was awarded a medal for her academic achievement from Panjab University, India. She completed her Master of Computing from University of Western Sydney. She won APAI scholarship to pursue her PhD in Computer Science. She completed the internship at National Australia bank where she worked in the role of Senior Analyst, nabCERT - Monitoring and Response Infrastructure and Security Services. She has developed a  REcursive, MUlti-stage Classifier for Client-side email Spam filtering using machine learnign and deep learning methods.

She has been involved in teaching, managing projects and research in the areas of Software Development, Information systems and Information security at WSU since July 2000.She had been developing and teaching the courses and units in the areas of Programming, Information systems, Application development, Software Engineering, Software Testing , Test Automation and Project Supervision at undergraduate and Post graduate levels. Simi takes a student-centred approach by being actively involved in identifying and using latest innovative technologies in teaching.  In 2012, she introduced IBM cloud in learning and teaching for the postgraduate unit Software Testing and Automation by setting up virtual environments for internal as well as external access to the tools for the students. 

 Simi has been managing projects for Software Development and Software Testing involving analysis, design, implementation and Software Testing of applications of various natures ranging from mobile app, web based systems, gaming applications. She has managed projects for University of Western Sydney, liaison with the industry partners and facilitating the projects for learning and teaching, testing solutions, research and engagement and brought them to success level. The projects leveraged methodologies such as Waterfall model and Agile development and technologies from IBM Test Management(Rational Quality Manager) and Test Automation(Rational Functional Tester) technology solutions to deliver the solution to ensure bug reporting and analysis.

She is passionate about enhancing student learning and growth and actively looks for engagement opportunities. Over the last 5 years she has developed partnerships with organisations such as IBM, Agile BI, Polaris Software Pty Ltd (Virtusa Polaris Pty Ltd), TestPro Pty Ltd, and Zone Products Pty Ltd and has identified opportunities for learning, teaching, leadership and engagement.Simi’s initiative to develop collaborations is not limited to domestic organisations, she has developed collaborations with international organisations and institutions. She is very motivated to assist students and identify new opportunities for student engagements. She developed collaborations with world recognised reputed institutions internationally  to offer students opportunity for student exchange and gain academic credits at WSU upon successful completion of the study overseas. 

 In last 5 years, Simi has joined editorial boards of journals, obtained research grants, published in journals as well as rank A and B conferences. Since 2015, she has been supervising students undertaking course work projects and research projects as part of units for Masters Research project A and Masters Research Project B. Simi has published peer reviewed papers in international conferences, in the areas of software development, software testing, email and SMS spam, cyber fraud, malware detection, learning & education, and machine learning. Simi has established research partnerships with the industry and has successfully worked on projects with them.

Simi has research contribution in the areas of software development, software testing, cyber fraud and security, malware detection, learning & education, and machine learning. Since 2005, Simi has been contributing to the research by organising conferences, reviewing papers for international conferences of ranking B and journals such Journal of Information Security and International Journal of Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing.

Simi has applied machine learning techniques in the area of cyber security and information security implementations. Simi has contributed to research in the area of cyber security by developing a dynamic multi-layer model for enhancing the efficiency of email spam filtering and published four conference papers on it. She has also contributed to the field of malware detection for android devices and published in International Journal of Advanced Computational Engineering and Networking in 2015.

As a researcher for software testing, Simi aims to enhance the performance and capability of software test process for manual as well as automation testing. Almost a decade ago, Software development industry has identified the dire need of incorporating software testing in the process of developing an application. Simi’s research identifies and implements the performance measures that enhance the qualities of the application such as performance, capability and response time. Currently, automation tools have very little test data management capabilities, Simi’s work identified and filled the gap of platform independent capability of the test automation tools.  Her research has implemented solutions for enhancements of manual test management and test automation tools.Simi’s research involves blending the strengths of academia with industry and provides a two-way benefit to both the groups. With input from industry her research, her work identifies the gap and conducts research to develop solution and industry provides a platform to implement that outcome in real world situations and solutions.

In 2015, Simi developed interest in the area of learning & teaching, worked on few projects and published on learning styles and delivery methods in higher education. 

Most of Simi’s research is focused on practicals implementations of the solutions found for problems identified and contributed to the community.
