Information for students:
  • Please note that I already supervise a large number of PhD students and for the foreseeable future I do not have any capacity for new students.
    So please do not email me.

  • Please note that the ANU is not offering internships for international students.

  • In semester 2 / 2020 I am teaching:

    1. COMP3430 / COMP8430 - Data Wrangling


My research interests:

  • Data matching (record linkage, entity resolution). I am interest in computational aspects (scalability and real-time matching), as well as privacy issues in data matching.

    I have written a book titled Data Matching - Concepts and Techniques for Record Linkage, Entity Resolution, and Duplicate Detection, which has been published by Springer in their Data-Centric Systems and Applications in August 2012. For details (including a PDF file of preface, table of contents, and references) see the data matching book page.

    Buy the book from Amazon.com (a Kindle version is now available).

  • Data Mining
    (for an excellent resource on data mining see: www.KDnuggets.com - Analytics, Big Data, and Data Mining Resources).

  • List of my current and past PhD students, and a set of resources with useful information for PhD students.


  • Personal interests:

    And I care:
