Biography summary

I am a Senior Lecturer in Data Science in the School of IT at Deakin University. I serve as the inaugural director for Deakin's Bachelor of Artificial Intelligence course, the first undergraduate AI programme in Australia.

The research of my group is focused on reliable machine learning. Recognising that the data are only noisy, partial, and biased representations of reality, we aim to create machine learning models faithful to the domain and responsible in the prediction. To this end, we tackle the research challenges in uncertainty estimation and model fusion. On the application side, we work primarily on machine learning problems from our collaborators in healthcare and cyber security.
