The Faculty of Business is home to about 100 academic researchers, as well as over 140 research higher degree students.
Given the strategic goals of the University, the Faculty of Business seeks to encourage applied research that will benefit the communities in our regions, as well as the communities that we serve nationally and internationally. Hence, many of our researchers have obtained nationally competitive grants as well as industry and government funding, and published their research findings in leading national and international journals.
The strong investment of the University in research in the Faculty has lead to substantive improvement in several key disciplinary areas in the Commonwealth government's latest Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) review, a result we are seeking to build on in coming years
Dr Burmeister is acting Sub-Dean Research in the Faculty of Business at CSU.
Dr Burmeister's research is focused on ethical issues concerning the clinical application of new technologies. For example, in 2015 he had articles accepted in the journals Alzheimer's & Dementia, and Gerontechnology, and was lead Chief Investigator for a large grant on healthy ageing. His expertise has been recognised internationally, seen in that he presented an invited keynote address on ethical issues in the development of assistive technologies in dementia, in Berlin Germany in October. His expertise has also been recognised nationally, seen in that he chairs the Australian Computer Society's national Committee on Computer Ethics; and, in his being the Charles Sturt University representative to the headspace Riverina consortium.
