Personal profile


I am a Lecturer in Computer Science at The University of Western Australia. I also hold Adjunct Lecturer positions at School of Mathematical Sciences at University of Adelaide as well as at Flinders University. I am also an Associate Investigator with ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers since 2017 and a member of the Equity and Diversity Committee.

My research interests include: social network analysis, human-centric cyber security, machine learning, medical image processing, health analytics, and human computer interaction. My current work focuses on predicting population level events in Australia, detecting fake news and misinformation and modeling polarisation on social media. I am also working on models to improve executive decision making using methods from complex systems.
