My Research Activities

Data is everywhere, generated by everything around us on a daily basis at incredible speeds and touching every aspect of our life. This has led to the emergence of a new discipline, Data Science, which involves finding new patterns within the huge amount of data. My research focus is to develop new data science models that not only find new patterns but also make it understandable for individuals to help their informed decision making. 

In my research projects, I have verified the suitability of new data science models in Australian industries ranging from agriculture to mining, pharmaceutical and retail. For example, we developed a low-cost network of sensors, coupled with data analytic techniques in order to predict the abnormal behaviour of milk temperature that assists the milk farmer in taking proactive steps to maximise the milk’s quality. This has enabled them to grow their business, produce better quality milk, and get a better price in return. In the retail industry, we developed a new model that decides how to allocate stock to customers based on their preferences, and values when stock is limited. This strategy is beneficial for customers as their preferences are taken into consideration in the modelling.
