Research Interests

Employment/Research History

The University of Sydney

Associate Professor, 2019-present
Senior Lecturer, 2015-2018
I am investigating the relationship between complex network structure and computational capabilities, with applications to computational neuroscience and collective behaviour in biology.

CSIRO Digital Productivity Flagship

2012-2015 (Research Scientist, 2014-2015; Postdoctoral Fellow, 2012-2014)
Working in the Adaptive Systems / Data Mining teams, I untertook machine learning in biological data sets and continuing to investigate the relationship between complex network structure and computational capabilities.

Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences

Postdoctoral Researcher, 2010-2012
Working in the Complex Structures in Biology and Cognition research group of Prof. Juergen Jost, I investigated the information dynamics of computation in complex networks.

CSIRO ICT Centre and School of Information Technologies at The University of Sydney

Ph.D. student / Researcher, 2006-2010
I developed a framework for quantifying the information dynamics of distributed computation in complex systems.

Seeker Wireless

Senior Research Engineer, 2006-2010.
I worked part-time in the applet development team at Seeker, assisting in development of our client-side SIM toolkit applet and investigating handset compatibility issues.

Telstra Research Laboratories

2001-2006 (Senior Research Technologist, 2004-2006; Research Technologist 2001-2004).
At Telstra, I worked on a variety of projects and technologies, including anomaly detection in network and service metrics, online identity management, mobile applications development, web service development, and online trading technologies.
