Academic background

Research interests

My teaching activities include lecturing and tutoring in undergraduate and postgraduate units,  as well as research degree supervision. Currently, I am lecturing the undergraduate artificial intelligence unit (CAB320) and the postgraduate unit IFN680 on advanced artificial intelligence.
My approach to teaching AI is to focus on providing solid foundations on search techniques and the principles behind machine learning. The assignments are carefully chosen so that students can develop a good understanding of the capabilities and limits of the approaches taught in the lectures.

My current research main focus is on an international project on “Dugong Detector to Monitor Seagrass Health”

My early work on neural networks and AI for strategic games did not involve industry partners but in the last few years my projects have become more applied:

  • Development of deep learning based software to monitor dugong populations.
  • Robotic solution for textile recycling
  • Smart bin
  • I have been involved through the Rail CRC in the development of vision based techniques to detect near-miss incidents at railroad crossings.
  • With colleagues from CARRS-Q, I have applied machine learning techniques to driver safety problems.
  • I have also worked on projects for Mining3.
