Recruiting Students

I'm recruiting PhD and Honours students.  If you are are interested in working with me in one of my areas (see research projects and publications ) and have excellent results, please don't hesitate in contacting me.  There are a number of scholarships (APA, IPRS, RPIS, RPS, VCPS) and funded places available.



Hi! Welcome to my webpage.  I am a researcher in machine learning and data science.  I also have interests in the areas of social network analysis, dimensionality reduction, itinerary recommendation, integrated optimisation-machine learning approaches and network security,

Contact me if you cannot access a paper or interested in doing research with me.  Always happy to discuss and looking for opportunities to supervise or/and collaborate.
