Editor/Author Biographies
Peter Busch is a lecturer in the Department of Computing at Macquarie University. His background is somewhat more diverse than this discipline, with an interest in human settlement patterns and faraway places; he studied both geography and German as an undergraduate at the University of Adelaide. Having always been keen on books and libraries more specifically, he obtained a position in the library at Adelaide University. His library experience led him to want to undertake a master’s degree in librarianship at Monash University (Melbourne). Realising the future lay very much in IT whilst having an interest in experiencing Tasmania, encouraged him to complete further studies in computing at the University of Tasmania. A few years were then spent as an associate lecturer in the Department of Computer Science and thereafter the School of Information Systems at that university. With an interest in an academic career he completed his PhD under the supervision of the late C.N.G. ‘Kit’ Dampney at Macquarie University (Sydney), examining the knowledge management implications of tacit knowledge diffusion. His current research focuses on knowledge management, organisational learning, and human capital. As with almost all academics, he teaches as well, having a strong interest in databases, information modelling, management of IT and enterprise integration.
