Raymond Wong


I am the Director of Online Education and an Associate Professor at the School of Computer Science & Engineering, UNSW.


During 2006-2010, I worked at NICTA (now Data61) and was collaborating with them until 2018. I was involved in its spin-out company Cohesive Data Inc.

I received my BSc from ANU, MPhil and PhD from HKUST. I held the Sir Edward Youde Graduate Fellowship. After my PhD, I was a postdoc at Stanford University and visiting scholar at UCLA. Before I joined UNSW in 2000, I worked at the computer science departments of the following universities: HKUST, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Macquarie University, and then University of Sydney. I was a Visiting Professor at Tsinghua University, Beijing, in 2011-2013.

At UNSW, I teach: recently COMP9319 (Web Data Compression and Search) and COMP6714 (Information Retrieval).

I used to teach: previously COMP3311 (an undergraduate database course), COMP9311 (a postgraduate database course), and COMP9314 (Next Generation Databases); sometimes COMP9315 (i.e., Database System Implementation) and COMP3900/9900 (the capstone project course for undergraduates and postgraduates); and occasionally COMP3311 (an undergraduate database course).
