Asst Prof Arul Indrasen Chib
Dr. Arul Chib focuses on mobile phone healthcare systems, and pursues action-oriented research in varied cross-cultural contexts, particularly in resource-constrained environments. He investigates the key factors influencing the adoption of technology for positive health outcomes, and has engaged in the design and development of healthcare technology systems spanning online and mobile platforms. Global collaborations with IDRC, UNICEF, and UNFPA have led to research grants of S$3.7Mn. His work with Acehnese midwives has led to great interest in the field of mobile health (mHealth) technologies. Of note is that the original JAVA application for mobile phones was developed in 2006, well in advance of the latest innovations in mobile-based applications. This ground-breaking technology to improve maternal and infant health was developed for 223 rural midwives based in the tsunami-affected region of Aceh Besar, Indonesia, impacting as many as 600 villages. This ICT project, facilitated by cell phones and data sending mobile technology, uses the existing pool of knowledge in the rural health system to bolster local resources. Prior to working on tsunami relief, Dr. Chib collaborated with a Peruvian NGO, Instituto Peruano de Paternidad Responsable, to develop an interactive computer-based multimedia game to deliver information about sexual and reproductive health, particularly about HIV/AIDS. Dr. Chib is currently extending his work in mHealth by examining issues of power and influence caused by the mobile phone usage amongst community healthcare workers in Papaua New Guinea, Thailand, India, and China. Dr. Chib's contributions have led to a number of research awards, including the 2011 Prosper.NET-Scopus Award for the use of ICTs for sustainable development. This award was accompanied by a fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, one of the highest honours within the European scholarly tradition. He has been awarded fellowships at Ludwig Maxmilians University and University of Southern California, and the Best Graduate Student Award of S. I. Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University. He serves on the editorial boards of Human Communication Research and Communication Yearbook, the flagship publications of the International Communication Association. Chib has published in the best refereed journals, such as the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, ranked first amongst Thompson Reuters communication journals, the Journal of Health Communication, ranked first amongst health communication journals, and Information Technologies & International Development, ranked first amongst journals in the field of information and communication technologies for development. He has contributed to book chapters from leading publishers such as Cambridge Scholars, Hampton Press, Springer, and Taylor & Francis. In 2012, along with Dr. Roger Harris, he released the edited volume, Linking Research to Practice (2012, ISEAS Singapore). His research papers have been adopted as syllabi in institutions in Copenhagen, Geneva, Manila, and Virginia. He is currently working on the authored book, mHealth in Developing Countries (forthcoming, Taylor & Francis UK). Dr. Chib’s work in as many as nine countries has been profiled in media outlets ranging from the United Nations Chronicle to the Singaporean press. He has been a guest speaker at numerous global events, and in 2012, gave the keynote speech at the Media Health Communication Conference in Munich. He is a member of the organizing committees of the IFIP 8.6 2013 and ICTD 2012 conferences.

Enterprise Resource Planning ERP systems represent a major change in organisational information systems in terms of their scale and scope, reliance on vendors and advocacy of best practices. They are pervasive and often mission critical. Streamlining and integrating organisational procedures and standardising them over a single platform were what these systems promised. However, cases of expensive ERP implementations going awry has led many to recognise the inherent challenges of successfully implementing such complex package software. Research is currently in progress on these themes: (1) cultural fit of the underlying ERP business models, (2) partitioning the sources of misfits in ERP, (3) challenges in analysing, designing, and implementing ERP, and (4) ERP as an leverage for enterprise integration. Achieving Global Excellence in Asian Companies: Strategy, Governance and Technology The growth of the Asian market has led to the development of a select group of Asian companies that have successfully established an international presence. How did these enterprises transform themselves to capture the opportunities in the international market? What strategy and governance principles have they used? How has information technology enabled scale, responsiveness, and innovation in the highly volatile business environment? This research study seeks to understand the practices followed by a handful of leading Asian companies that have clearly established themselves as global leaders.
Assoc Prof Siew Chee Kheong, David
Research A/Prof Siew's research interests span three areas: (1) Quality of Service (QoS) Provisioning; (2) Congestion Control; and (3) Application of intelligent control to networking problems. The underlying network could be a wired, wireless or optical network. (1) While there is no shortage of proposed packet scheduling algorithms, our approach to the problem is slightly different. We are particularly interested in practical issues in search of low computational-complexity fine-granularity scheduling together with admission control that provide per-flow deterministic guarantees using class-based traffic treatment. This work would allow efficient QoS provisioning with specific queueing delay bounds. Our approach is to provide low-complexity service-curve based scheduling and admission control. Using nice properties of service-curves, we are able to avoid packet-by-packet analysis but provide an elegant analysis of the complex end-to-end QoS provisioning. We have recently proposed a low-complexity Flow-state-dependent Dynamic Priority Scheduling (FDPS) algorithm that could provide a service-curve based packet scheduling engine that enables per-flow deterministic guarantees. My recent in-press publication on per-flow QoS using class-based treatment is listed in . (2) My interest in Congestion Control is to improve the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) fairness and prevent TCP collapse in best-effort networks. It is well-know that TCP performance is highly dependent on Round-trip-time (RTT), an issue that has attracted many investigations. While most existing works attempt to provide solutions at the transport-layer, our approach uses both the features of network-layer and transport-layer. Our recent work  demonstrated that our solution could improve TCP fairness by reducing dependence on RTT, and prevent TCP collapse by means of intelligent packet discarding . It has been proven that classical TCP will not be efficient in such high bandwidth-delay product networks. As a result, we are currently interested in providing a comprehensive solution to networks (e.g. Grid computing networks) with high bandwidth-delay product. The issues of max-min fairness and rate of convergence are converging issues for the research. (3) We are interested to apply intelligent control to network problems would include stochastic QoS guarantees and/or wireless network carrying heterogeneous traffic. These works could involve cross-disciplinary solution using control theory, fuzzy logic or artificial intelligence. The natural progression of such works would be Application-layer QoS provisioning in which cross-layer issues dominate. We are currently interested in applying distributed algorithm for collaborative wireless networks. Solutions are needed for many challenging issues on how rate, delay and access control in this area.
