Dr. Mark Tee received his BSc(Hons) in Computer Science from Coventry University in 2005 and served and intermittently contracted in the software development industry until 2018. He completed a Masters in Software Engineering (OUM) and a BEng(Hons) from Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak by 2014. He completed his PhD candidature at the same university in 2018 and joined the Faculty of Engineering, Computing, and Science as a Lecturer the following year.

His doctoral research focused on developing a real-time multi-sensor fusion model for augmenting the human-following navigation of indoor companion robots. His previous activity areas include computer game development, drone technology applications, and assistive robotics for injury prevention.

Dr. Mark currently pursues research and industrial applications of the Internet of Things (IoT), Deep Learning, and Assistive Robotics.
