Networking, O/S scheduling, Modelling
Piers Lauder was a programmer in the School of Information Technologies from 1974 until 2006. His main interests were in the areas of networking and operating systems. With Judy Kay he co-authored the Fair Share Scheduler later sold by Aurema (under the name ARMTech ShareExpress). With Bob Kummerfeld he co-authored the Message Handling Systems network (MHSnet) used, amongst others, by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Piers has also been a Technical Director for two University `spin-off' companies: Message Handling Systems P/L, and, currently, Personis P/L where is is working on Ubiquitous Computing Environment Modelling.
