As Associate Dean (Education) of the Faculty of Arts, Design and Architecture (UNSW ADA), I lead a truly diverse and collaborative education portfolio that engages the strategic direction of the Faculty and University to deliver distinctive world-class education and student-centred academic excellence. As a future-focussed academic leader, I bring unique strategic and operational leadership to lead UNSW ADA into a new era of effective and sustainable technology-enhanced educational innovation, rich and rewarding student experiences, and recognised educational excellence built on a foundation of inclusive, supportive, and dynamic people and culture.

I am also a psychologist and linguist with the role of Associate Professor in Linguistics, Interpreting, and Translation. I am also the lead of the HAL Language Processing Research Lab, and ADA Faculty Lead at the UNSW Institute for Cybersecurity. With a focus on the psychology of language and technology, my research investigates human language processing and usage by employing natural language processing techniques and combinations of online and offline methods, mainly eye-tracking and psychometrics. My research has been supported by the Australian Research Council, Department of Defence, Science Foundation Ireland, the European Commission, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters, NSW Health, Enterprise Ireland, and a range of industry collaborations, including the Australian Federal Police, Microsoft, and Symantec. As a Chief Investigator, I have a career total of $2.2 million in competitive research grants and contracted research. 

My current projects include:

Prior to my appointment at UNSW Sydney (2014), my doctoral (2008–2012) and post-doctoral research positions (2012–2013) were funded by Science Foundation Ireland and supervised by Prof Sharon O'BrienProf Dorothy Kenny, and Prof Andy Way at the CNGL Centre for Global Intelligent Content in Dublin City University, a multi-million euro, cross-institutional centre now known as the ADAPT Centre for Digital Content Technology. The ADAPT Centre has brought together more than 150 researchers from CNGL and affiliated centres, which collectively have won more than €100m in funding and have a strong track record of bridging research and innovations to more than 140 industry partnerships. Throughout my work at the centre, I collaborated with a diverse range of university, government, and industry partners in pure and applied research projects, including Symantec, Microsoft, KantanMT, VistaTEC, Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin, the University of Limerick, and the European Commission. 

My subsequent post-doctoral position (2013–2014), supervised by Prof Josef Van Genabith, was based in the School of Computing and the National Centre for Language Technology at Dublin City University as part of the QTLaunchPad project, a €2.2 million project funded by the European Union through its Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for research and technological development. My role was to establish a consortium of academic and industry partners, including the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the University of Sheffield, the Athena Research and Innovation Centre, the Globalization and Localization Association, META-NET, Welocalize, SAP, and IBM, to establish a framework for high-quality language technology research and development across Europe. The project went on to develop into QT21 in 2015, a €3.9 million project funded by the European Union through its Horizon 2020 program.
