Personal profile

Biography

David Albrecht started in the Faculty of Information Technology in 1994. He has done research in several areas including Machine Learning, Bayesian Networks, User Modelling, Geostatistics, Logic, Functional Operator Theory, and Statistics. He is currently jointly supervising three Ph.D. students and two Masters students. He has two honours degrees and a Ph.D in Mathematics from Monash (1994). During his time at Monash David has run an extension program for Primary School students, the Faculty Extension program for Secondary School students, worked with the teachers at John Monash Science School in developing several subjects, developed a unit which has become the basis of a new VCE unit, and was involved in the Thailand-Australia Science and Engineering Assistance Project (TASEAP) to improve the quality of undergraduate science and engineering in Thai universities. He has always been at the forefront of applying and developing better learning and teaching methods, most recently the introduction of Peer Instruction and the development of resources on Alexandria in the Faculty of Information Technology. In 2015 he was nominated by the Faculty to be the Faculty Foundation Fellow of the Monash Education Academy. David is an experienced Coordinator and manager of courses, and is currently the chair of Faculty Academic Progress Committee and Associate Dean Learning and teaching for the faculty.
