Hi! I'm Andrew. I'm currently a research fellow at the Applied AI Institute (A²I²) within Deakin University, and have worked on projects in the areas of intelligent transport systems, GPS tracking data analysis, smart-homes, and defense simulation. My Ph.D. project was about the design of spatio-temporal data processing pipelines.
I want to develop friendly, open source AI that can help organise the world and eliminate wasted resources.
The Intelligent Transport Systems Lab seeks to understand road traffic congestion and propose better ways to manage it. During one of my internships there, I designed a new visualisation approach called "Hub Map" that could better display the large number of traffic parameters collected about traffic network links than conventional graph visualisation approaches.

Data De-identification Portal
Deidentify.org is a tool I created to improve data de-identification practices and reduce risk of participant re-identification. It encourages the researcher to precisely specify their analysis and de-identification methods upfront, and increases transparency by giving the data custodian fine-grained control over which analyses are run.Read Paper View Demo Watch Presentation Slides
