Thanks for visiting! I am currently a 2nd year PhD student.


My supervisors are A/Prof Nick Barnes (Chair), Dr José M. Álvarez and Dr Christian Walder.

Research Interests

I am broadly interested in the intersection of Computer Vision and Machine Learning. My research is currently focused on optimisation of probabilistic graphical models for enhancing image segmentation and semantic understanding. This currently involves investigation into aspects of graph construction, their spectral decomposition and transductive semi-supervised machine learning techniques. Our ultimate goal is to leverage voluminous unlabelled data with a small amount of labelled data and achieve scalable, accurate classification.


I am external to CECS and the CSIRO Data61 Canberra Research Laboratory (CRL).
