Background and interests

Associate Professor Tony Savarimuthu lectures and coordinates COMP101, the introductory paper in Information Science. Tony has a background of working as a Software Engineer and a Lecturer in India.

His main research interests are in the areas of multi-agent systems (particularly normative multi-agent systems) and Software Engineering. Recently, he has also been active in the area of Information Systems.

His PhD thesis in the area of multi-agent systems investigated mechanisms for norm emergence and norm identification in artificial agent societies. His thesis was placed in the Dean’s exceptional thesis list for Otago’s School of Business in 2011.
