About Me

I was born and bred in Darwin, at the “top-end” of Australia, where I finished high-school before moving to Sydney to complete an honours degree in pure mathematics and computer science at the University of New South Wales in 1996.

After graduating I continued on at UNSW, completing a PhD in machine learning at the School of Computer Science and Engineering in 2006. My research resulted in a new technique for inductive transfer for relational rule learning. During my candidature I moved to New York to work as an intern at IBM’s T. J. Watson Research Center in 2001 on an application of transfer learning in a text-mining domain.

Upon returning to Sydney, I worked to complete my PhD while working in a series of part-time and full-time jobs. From 2001 to 2003 I was a part-time programmer for Proxima Technology (which was acquired by Compuware in 2007) followed by a 9 month stint as a researcher/programmer with the Smart Internet Technology CRC. In 2005 I started full-time work at Canon Information Systems Research Australia (CISRA) as a research engineer where I worked with some great people applying machine learning techniques to a variety of commercial problems.

In 2007 I started a post-doctoral position in the Statistical Machine Learning group at the Australian National University and NICTA in Canberra.

About This Site

I bought the domain in early 2007 with the intention of making it the one-stop-shop for all of my personal and professional information.

In many ways, this new site is the successor to my previous personal site: Three Words Long. I intend to eventually move all of the content their to this new domain.

More about the content, design and mechanics of this site can be found in the site's Colophon.
