Before joining UQ in 1999, he worked as a researcher in Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), leading its Spatial Information Systems group. His research focus is to find effective and efficient solutions for managing, integrating and analyzing very large amount of complex data for business, scientific and personal applications. He has been working in the area of spatiotemporal and multimedia databases, data mining, data quality management, high performance query processing, big data analytics and machine learning, co-authored over 300 research papers. He received Best Paper Awards of WISE 2012&2013, ICDE 2015, DASFAA 2016 and ADC 2019. He was the Program Committee Chair of Australasian Database Conferences (ADC 2002 and 2003), International Conference on Web Information Systems Engineering (WISE 2004), Asia Pacific Web Conferences (APWeb 2003 and 2006), International Conference on Databases Systems for Advanced Applications (DASFAA 2009, 2012 and 2015), International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems (CoopIS 2012), IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 2013), ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM 2016), International Symposium on Spatial and Temporal Databases (SSTD 2017) and International Conference on Very Large Databases (VLDB 2020). He is a General Co-Chair of ACM Multimedia Conference 2015, IEEE International Conference on Data Management (MDM 2018) and China Big Data Technology Conference 2017. He was a keynote speaker at WISE 2008, CIKM 2015, DEXA 2018 and MDM 2019. He has been on the program committees of numerous international conferences, often as a Senior PC member, including SIGMOD, VLDB, ICDE, WWW, ACM Multimedia, ICDM, ICDCS, ICDM, AAAI and SIGKDD. He was the Convenor and Director of ARC Research Network in Enterprise Information Infrastructure from 2004-2011 (a major national research collaboration initiative in Australia), and the founding chair of ACM SIGSPATIAL Australian Chapter from 2010-2011. Currently he is an Associate Editor of The World Wide Web Journal, Distributed and Parallel Databases, Knowledge and Information Systems, and Springer's Encyclopedia of Database Systems. He was the Chair of IEEE Technical Committee on Data Engineering (2015 - 2018). He is on the Steering Committees of ICDE, DASFAA, WISE, APWeb, Australasian Database Conferences and BigComp conferences. In the past he was an Associate Editor of The VLDB Journal (2008-2015), IEEE Data Engineering Bulletin, Information Processing Letters, IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (2009 - 2015), and IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing (2013-2019).
