Dr Hossain’s main research focus is in the area of behavioural modelling of technological innovation.
Business process management; e-business and e-tourism; supply chain and quality management; open data and big data.
He has developed a number of models that explain the organisational and individual behaviour of technology diffusion. For example one model is based on the factors that drive Australian livestock farmers to accept and diffuse a technology innovation such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and another one on how ICT-based innovations can develop sustainable business models in the Australian tourism industry.
To further his knowledge and expertise on RFID technology in the livestock business, Dr Hossain has developed collaborative networks with research teams at North South University (Bangladesh), Swansea University (UK), King Fahad University of Petroleum and Minerals (Saudi Arabia), Murdoch University and Curtin University (Australia). He has also established networks with the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) (Western Australia).
Dr Hossain was awarded a Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2015 and is based in the School of Business IT and Logistics.
