I am currently in the final year of my PhD in Computer Science at ANU. I specialise in deep learning. I am currently working as a lecturer and tutor co-ordinator for COMP4660/8420 Neural Networks, Deep Learning and Bio-inspired Computing.
My overall research goal is to develop techniques that allow people with more limited expertise in the area to access the power of deep learning algorithms.
I have a Masters in Computer Science specialising in Artificial Intelligence. My Masters thesis was on generating nonhomogeneous object images using deep neural networks.
My academic background also includes degrees in Actuarial Studies and Economics.
Deep learning, transfer learning, automated algorithms for transfer learning and hyperparameter optimisation, reinforcement learning.
