Personal profile


Prapa’s research has focussed around real-time, automated decision making in the fields of telecoms, healthcare and scheduling. As a PhD topic, she worked on the use of hyper-heuristics to transparently optimise scheduling problems in real world situations. Post-doctoral research included automated monitoring and intervention in intensive care patients, optimal strategies in telecoms networks and unmanned aerial vehicle control and security processing. More recently she has worked on novel method to monitor and manage patients on the autism spectrum using a diverse sensing environment and data-fused decision making. She also has an active interest in novel teaching methods in a tertiary environment. These projects resulted in several high-quality journal and conference publications and successful grant applications.
