I am a Senior Researcher at NICTA's Canberra Laboratory, where I am a member of the Statistical Machine Learning research group. I am also affiliated to the Australian National University as an adjunct research fellow in the Research School of Information Sciences and Engineering.
Before joining NICTA in January 2005, I have been a post-doctoral fellow for a few months in 2004 with the AICML at the University of Alberta, Canada, where I worked with Dale Schuurmans.
I wrote my PhD thesis in the area of structural pattern recognition. I was supervised by Terry Caelli and Dante Barone. The defense took place in Porto Alegre on July 2004.
Prior to starting my PhD, I worked three years for a Nuclear Medicine company (ADAC Laboratories), which was later bought by PMS. As an undergraduate I did research in theoretical physics with Felipe Rizzato.
