Following the success of the Human Genome Project, the entire scientific community witnessed a large data explosion in genomics, which was also aided by advances in molecular biology technologies such as next-generation sequencing. These high-throughput technologies enable comprehensive molecular profiling of cancer cell lines, including gene expression. Regardless of the use of gene-based assays, they provide abundant genomic information for identifying participating genes (biomarkers) that contribute to the chemoresistance process in cancer cells.

The need: Early detection and diagnosis of eye conditions is critically important as many diseases, including diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration, often show minimal or even no symptoms. Glaucoma is called the "silent thief of sight" since it progressively damages the eyes without any noticeable signs.

This project relates to the visualisation of the source of data used in scientific experiments, and their results. The visualisation focus is graphs.


Trust in the results of scientific experiments and scientific modelling relies on knowing how they have been derived – that is, the ‘scientific workflow’ that led to their production. Being able to reproduce the scientific workflow that led to such results is critical in ensuring trust, confidence and transparency [2].

In our current day and age, there is an exponential growth in multimodal data, especially the transition of social media from text-based communications to video formats which can be observed with the rise of TikTok, Youtube, and Instagram Reels. This shift requires a shift in how we analyze multimodal data as we will have to move away from traditional text sentiment analysis such as TextCNN.

The application of AI in sports is widely researched as both coaches and players realise the significance of quantitative analysis that can be extracted from video matches. Detecting and segmenting in-play scenes in sport video
sequences is necessary in various applications such as quantitative game and performance analysis. In studies on video-based game and performance analysis of racket sports, much research efforts have been made to explore the relationships between predefined parameters and sports performance, and the methodologies for effective coaching.

The aim of this project is to probe, conceptualize, and assess the fusion of generative AI with data comics to augment their narrative potency, user comprehension, and user engagement. Data comics, an innovative blend of data and visual artistry, effectively portray intricate narratives in an accessible comic strip format. By integrating generative AI, we can automate and enrich the storytelling process, further enhancing the visual and narrative depth of data comics. The primary areas of research encompass AI, data visualisation, and user experience.

The research challenge for this project is to curate a dataset captured in a collaborative learning setting in which teams of three students engaged in conversations and created a joint concept map. The goal is to analyse the content of their conversations and concept maps they created at a multi-touch tabletop and model the epistemic constructs reflected in both their conversations and the artefact they jointly create. Depending on the trajectory that you take, examples of the questions that such a project could investigate include:

AI in Medicine

AI has been growingly used in Medicine. There are big opportunities for AI in medical research, including medical imaging diagnosis. AI and Deep Learning have been used to detect and classify lesions in various diseases, such as cancers.

Panomaric XRay

This project is in collaboration with the Faculty of Dentistry, Airlangga University, Indonesia. We will explore the use of AI in dentistry, especially in dental medical imaging and periodontology (gum disease). Gum disease often causes bone loss in the furcation of a lower molar (see picture below).

Admission to the Medical Degree

Admission to the Medical degree at Monash is very competitive. The criteria is beyond the ATAR score. It covers many other factors, such as health test, interview, etc. Consequently, the ranking process is very complex.
