I am interested in sequential decision-making problems of the type that appear in the areas of AI Planning and Heuristic Search. Often these problems involve one or more agents moving through a task environment. Our job in this case is to find a collision-free trajectory that brings each agent from an initial start location and to a desired target position. Such problems appear in many settings including Robotics, GPS Navigation and in Computer Games.
I am a Senior Lecturer and ARC DECRA fellow at Faculty of IT, Monash University, Australia. I completed my PhD in Computer Vision from The University of Western Australia (UWA). My PhD thesis received multiple awards including the prestigious Robert Street Prize. My research interests are in computer vision, machine learning, deep learning, and affective computing.
I am an associate professor of software engineering in the Faculty of IT at Monash University and associate dean (academic development). My research focuses on human and social aspects of software engineering specialising in agile software development.
