Associate Professor Addie commenced his research career at Telstra Research Laboratories (TRL), where he was sponsored to undertake his PhD in Markov Additive Processes (1986). His notable achievements at TRL include joint development of the concept of virtual paths which forms a key feature of the ATM architecture for broadband networks. ATM networks formed the transport network of the internet for decades and are only now being replaced. Another notable achievement is the development of accurate performance models for networks which carry Gaussian traffic, which is known to be a good model for traffic in core networks (including the Internet). AProf Addie joined UniSQ in 1993, where he was Head of the Department of Mathematics and Computing in 2004-2006. At UniSQ he has taught across a range of programs Master of Cybersecurity, M. Information Technology, M. Science, Bachelor. Information Technology, B. Science, He has supervised 10+ PhD students in the fields of Mathematics, Networking and Cybersecurity. Notable achievements at UniSQ include the development of network analysis and design software , available through the Netml website. The Netml system has contributed to more than 19 publications, and has been used by more than 1000 students over the 15 years it was developed. Also, the development of the concept of cybersecurity architecture as the project of rigorously guaranteeing mandatory user and organisation objectives. AProf Addie retired from full time employment at UniSQ in 2022. He continues as an active researcher as well as supervising PhD students and students in the Advanced ICT Professional Project and ICT Professional Project courses.
