A/Prof Creighton is Deputy Director of the Institute for Intelligent Systems Research and Innovation. He has extensive experience with modelling, visualisation and haptics for decision support in complex environments.
Since completing his PhD in 2004 he has been actively involved in the research of modelling, discrete event simulation, computational intelligence and simulation-based optimisation. He has developed algorithms to allow the application of learning agents to industrial-scale systems for use in optimisation, dynamic control and scheduling and advanced estimation and forecasting using prediction intervals. A/Prof Creighton has made significant impact in the areas of industrial productivity and decision support systems in manufacturing and transport systems and transport security.
He has generated a large number of technical reports for government and industry partners. He has also developed software and algorithms for more than 15 software packages that have been implemented in manufacturing and logistics companies. He has extensive experience participating in and managing major research projects and project teams, from project concept through to successful delivery. This includes complex airspace, automotive, mining, and Department of Transport projects that typically involve multiple sites and multiple project teams.
