Supervisors in Information Technology, Monash University
Ehsan Shareghi is an assistant professor in the Department of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence of Monash, and an affiliated lecturer of University of Cambridge. Prior to this, he was an associate lecturer at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of UCL, and before that a postdoc in the Language Technology Lab at University of Cambridge for a few years. I lead a small team of grad and undergrad students working on predictive models for language (text and speech).
Ron Steinfeld received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science in 2003 from Monash University, Australia. Since 2020, he is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Information Technology, Monash University, Australia. Following his Ph.D. Ron worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in cryptography and information security at Macquarie University, Australia, holding the positions of Macquarie University Research Fellow in cryptography and information security (2007-2009), and ARC Australian Research Fellow in cryptography and information security (2009- 2012).
My principal interests are in discrete optimization and programming languages, both areas underpinned by methods for reasoning about constraints.
I am also interested in the intersection of machine learning and optimization: e.g. the predict+optimize problem of predicting parameters to be used in optimization problems.
