Expertise

My research mainly focuses on knowing and learning in maritime domain and how it can be theorised. I study cognitive Human Element and integration in maritime industry at sea and in ports.

I am interested in studying students’ knowledge learning and competency development in classroom and in simulators and how such competencies can be transferred to their workplaces of today and in future autonomous shipping.

Seafarer Training for Autonomous shipping: Requirements and Challenges (2021 - 2023)$20,833
Description
The continual progression of Industry 4.0 adoption across industries has already begun impacting many facets of maritime transport and logistics. The digital transformation in shipping will result in an intelligent transport system (ITS) through a series of disruptive changes to ship design, operations, and manning that collectively aim to enhance safety, efficiency, and environmental sustainability. Autonomous shipping as one aspect of the ITS in transportation is considered a potential solution for future challenges by utilising digital technologies on a large scale in the maritime domain. While there is growing research interest in these areas, examining the role of the human operators in the new smart shipping context is largely neglected and needs to be investigated. The utilisation of digital technologies will impact the human behaviour as an operator, including the changing role of seafarers on-board, the potential changes to their training and development of new capabilities, careers, and the strategies required to engage operators in their transition from traditional to autonomous shipping. This qualitative PhD project aims to explore the multi-dimensional impact of autonomous transportation technology resulting from the application of Industry 4.0 technologies on seafarers as a critical driver of ITS.

Investigating seafarer training needs for operating autonomous ships (2019 - 2020)$60,000
Description
This research will conduct an extensive investigation to identify the education and training requirements for seafarers who will operate the autonomous ships in the near future. The findings of this research will provide guidelines and a recommendatory framework which can be used by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and the maritime regulators to revise training needs towards mentoring seafarers and equipping them with the expertise required.
