I am currently a senior research engineer in the inference systems team at Data61 (formerly NICTA). I am applying and deriving new machine learning algorithms to prediction problems involving demographic, environmental and natural science data. My speciality is in creating algorithms with well calibrated model uncertainty, so that the risk of using the outputs of these algorithms for decision making can be quantified. I have also had extensive experience in making algorithms for the automatic, unsupervised interpretation of data (without human training), such as underwater imagery of the seafloor obtained by autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs). See my research page for more details.
I finished my PhD in July 2013 with the marine systems group at the Australian Centre for Field Robotics, which is in the University of Sydney. I also spent six months as a research associate with this group. I have a Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics, honours 1) and Bachelor of Commerce (Finance), also from the University of Sydney.
