I am a Research Associate in the School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.

1. Research Interests

My research interests lie in the Artificial Intelligence areas of data mining, recommender systems, multi-agent systems, and autonomous robotics.

1.1 Current Work

At present I am researching data mining and natural language processing of social media data (e.g., Twitter statuses, blog posts, news articles). Additionally I am working on a cross-faculty project which is developing tools for automated report highlighting and tagging using natural language processing and machine learning tools for use in social science research and conflict analysis.

1.2 Previous Work

Over the past few years of post-doctoral research I have been involved in:

In 2013 I completed my PhD in distributed auction algorithms for task allocation in multi-robot and autonomous systems - you can download the final version of my thesis here.
