Areas of Research

I lead the Database Group at the Research School of Computer Science, ANU. My research broadly lies in the areas of databases, data mining, data modelling and knowledge reasoning. I am interested in understanding theoretical aspects of data management and analysis, and exploring their potential in supporting practitioners.

The Database Group is seeking bright, enthusiastic doctoral students. Potential applicants may contact me with your CV and academic transcripts. The scholarship is a tax-free allowance of AUD 26,288 per year, tenable for a maximum of 3.5 years.
