Personal profile

Biography

I'm a Lecturer in Creative AI working for the Faculty of Information Technology. I'm part of SensiLab (https://sensilab.monash.edu/). I earned an MSc in Software Engineering in 2008 and a PhD in Computing in 2013 from the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences (MACS) at Heriot-Watt University, Scotland and have held consultancy and Research Associate appointments at BAE systems, Imperial College London and Goldsmiths, University of London. My focus is on the area of Computational Creativity, in particular on automating creative aspects of human reasoning processes. My work has been used for the production of the West End musical `Beyond the Fence’, conceived as the world’s first computer generated musical, and the TV documentary `Computer Says Show’ filmed by Sky Arts, an art-oriented television channel broadcasted in the UK.

Research interests

My main research interests are in the areas of Computational Creativity, Artificial Intelligence and Formal Methods, applying tools and techniques from different areas of AI to enable software systems to become creative collaborators and for the development of tools that support designers and make technologies more accessible.

My long term research goal is to investigate the development of novel models of co-creation and their associated reasoning tools, and to incorporate these findings into usable computational systems.
