I have held appointments with INRIA and CSIRO. Since 2001, I have been with the Australian National University, and since 2003, I have been a contributor to National ICT Australia (now Data61). In 2008, I was on long service leave and on sabbatical at LAAS-CNRS. In 2009-2011, I was NICTA's Canberra Laboratory director.
I am a member of ANU's Artificial Intelligence Group and of NICTA's Optimisation Research Group. My interests within AI include planning, scheduling, model-based diagnosis, search, and reasoning under uncertainty. My current research focuses on developing planning, scheduling, and diagnosis techniques that can handle larger and more complex problems featuring uncertainty, mixed discrete-continuous dynamics, and coordination among multiple entities. I am investigating applications of these techniques to future energy systems.

The projects I am offering are described here.
Competitive PhD scholarships are available either directly via ANU or via NICTA, but in both cases, students will be enrolled at and will receive a degree from the ANU and need to apply via the ANU application system.

The slides of a presentation, focused on NICTA activities, which I gave to prospective honours and PhD students in 2010, can be found here.
