Professor, UQ.

I am a Professor at the University of Queensland’s Electrical Engineering and Computer Science School, and the Director of Artificial Intelligence for the Queensland Digital Health Center (QDHeC). I am the research leader of the ielab. I had been an ARC DECRA Fellow (2018-2020). My research interests span a number of topics:

  • Formal models of Information Retrieval; in particular I am interested in
    • models of search, information seeking and interactions
    • semantic models of search
    • exploiting word embeddings in Information Retrieval
    • evaluation of Information Retrieval (including task-based evaluation)
  • Medical/Health Information Retrieval and Data Science; in particular I am interested in
    • retrieval models & strategies for consumers searching the web for health advise
    • retrieval models & strategies for cohort identification for clinical trials from electronic medical records
    • retrieval models & strategies for clinical decision support and evidence-based medicine
    • models, approaches and strategies for automating systematic reviews, in particular with respect to the search phase
    • health search evaluation

If you are a UQ student, or a prospective one, and you are interested to work with me as part of your studies, you can find ideas for research projects for PhD and other research degrees here. I also welcome international higher education students wanting to do a research visit and collaborating on ideas within my research interests.
