Dr Chris Browne

Senior Lecturer

Dr. Chris A. Browne’s research and teaching focus is on building literacy in systems approaches in the Colleges of Science, Health & Medicine at The Australian National University. This includes investigating conceptual models of complex systems, methodology of problem-solving processes, strategies for developing intuition of dynamic systems, and processes for constructing and integrating shared conceptual models of systems.

Chris holds a PhD, BEng and BAsianStudies from The Australian National University, is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and Tomorrow's Systems Engineer lead in the Systems Engineering Society of Australia.

Chris is currently a Sub Dean in the Colleges of Science; Health and Medicine, and Convenor of the Vice-Chancellor's Courses.
