Former ARC DECRA Fellow
am was an Academic at Monash University.
I used to do research in Machine Learning.
I built models for Environmental and Social Good.
In 2020, I decided to leave Academia after 11 terrific years in research and more than 7 years at Monash University.
I am excited to join the Australian Government where I hope to serve people more directly.
My dear AI research people, be well, compete less, and keep in mind the discriminations that the systems we develop might bring.
