I am working in the School of Information Technology at Deakin University as a Senior Lecturer of Computer Science. I am also the HDR coordinator of D2I (Data to Intelligence Research Centre) and a member of DARL (Data Analytics Research Lab) at the school. My research works focus on the fields of data mining and machine learning. Particular topics include clustering analysis, anomaly detection, similarity learning and their applications for pattern recognition and information retrieval. Most research outcomes have been published in top-tier conferences and journals, including SIGKDD, PAKDD, AAAI, Artificial Intelligence Journal, Pattern Recognition Journal and Machine Learning Journal.
I got my Ph.D. in AI with a Mollie Holman Medal for the best doctoral thesis of the year from Monash University in 2017, supervised by Prof. Kai Ming Ting and A/Prof. Mark Carman. I obtained the Research Award for Excellence in Early Career Research Performance and the Teaching and Learning Award from Deakin University in 2020 and 2021, respectively. I have also secured five research grants of around AUD$150,000 in total since 2018.
