My name is Helen (Hye-Young) Paik. I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computer Science and Engineering, University of New South Wales (UNSW). I am also a visiting academic at the Software and Computational Systems Group at Data61/CSIRO (from July 2018 – current).

My career in computing started with IBM Australia as a junior application programmer in 1998. Although I loved the teamwork environment in industry, I realised my passion was in academia where I can work with students and new ideas. After receiving my PhD degree in Computer Science (in Web data integration) at UNSW in 2004, I spent sometime at QUT, Brisbane at Information Systems School working on business process and workflow management systems before moving back to CSE, UNSW in 2005 where I am currently a senior lecturer. Broadly speaking, my background expertise come from areas such as Middleware, Service-Oriented Software Design and Architecture, Distributed Data and Application Integrations. Recently, the new distributed application platforms namely blockchains and Distributed Ledger Technology have become my main focus of research projects, looking into various privacy enabling technologies such as Decentralised Data Analytics and Data Management, Decentralised Identity Management.

I am looking for thesis, project and PhD students to work on some new problems together. If you are interested, please contact me. Email is the best way to get my attention, but you could also use the Contact Page here.
