I am a Lecturer and Co-Head of the Computing and Education research group in the School of Computer Science Engineering at UNSW. My research is at the intersection of novel software and artificial intelligence-based systems applications and world-class computing education. AI Education systems should genuinely enhance student engagement and improve learning experiences in computing education. My work has been published in premier conferences and journals such as the International Conference on Software Engineering. More importantly, it is embedded in open-source education projects such as SplashKit, and notably, Formatif, used at several Australian and New Zealand universities with over 230,000 students.
I also work in higher education's academic integrity, focusing on student-friendly approaches to retaining integrity. I am an:
Previously, I was a Research Fellow at the Applied Artificial Intelligence Institute (A²I²) in Defence, working on stochastic system modelling and insight generation, and has many years of experience teaching a wide range of computing courses at various universities in Australia.
