Background: Insects are vital components of natural and agricultural ecosystems that interact with plants in complex ways. Monitoring can help us understand these interactions to improve crop production, and to assist us to sustain our natural ecosystems as we change the Earth's climate. This technology is vital to inform our strategies to protect global food supplies and manage our national parks and forests.

We have developed Action Translate - an initiative (and online tool) that supports students volunteering their time to translate content from NGOs that otherwise would not have been able to commission translation.

Our vision is to scale this initiative internationally through a global network of T&I departments, offering opportunities for students world-wide to gain valuable experience.

Online teaching, particularly synchronous Zoom classes are not very interesting for students.

This results in less interaction and participation of students in such events.

We are developing a number of key tools that enable teachers to increase the 'production value' of such online classes - turning them into 'live events' rather than just online lectures.

Tools that are developed in this project will be used in active teaching at scale across Monash.

Linguistic phenomena have emerged and evolved over the span of thousands of years leading to many variations. Through this evolution, many linguistic structures and compositions have emerged or disappeared. In this project we will deploy an information-theoretic perspective to investigate the connections between linguistic phenomena (survival), and communication efficiency and emergence.

Freedom of Information is an important tool for investigating a public authority or organisation. Subject to certain conditions, it creates an obligation to provide recorded information, provided an organisation is a public authority.

I am interested in supervising projects that make use of Freedom of Information as a tool for investigating information management practices within public-sector organisations. For example, this might include information security, policies around information retention, or any other topic that can be investigated using Freedom of Information.

In situ analysis of complex biochemical metrices, such as microbial fermentation products, has drawn substantial research interests in recent years. Compared to the commonly used chemical analysis technique, spectroscopic analysis has great potential for this purpose due to its advantages of being rapid, contactless, lossless, and solvent-free. The major obstacle for the further application of the spectroscopic technique in the analysis of biochemical samples is the lack of customized data mining methods for the highly complicated spectral signal of the organic mixtures.

Machine learning models have significantly improved the ability of autonomous systems to solve challenging tasks, such as image recognition, speech recognition and natural language processing. The rapid deployment of such models in safety critical systems resulted in an increased interest in the development of machine learning models that are robust and interpretable

Machine learning (ML) training and evaluation usually involve large-scale datasets and complicated computation. To process data efficiently, a promising solution is to outsource the processes to cloud platforms. However, traditional approaches of collecting users' data at cloud platforms are vulnerable to data breaches.
