I am a Chief Investigator of the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision, and a Senior Lecturer (roughly equivalent to a tenured Assistant Professor position in the US system) at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia.

I conduct research in robotic vision, at the intersection of robotics, computer vision, and machine learning. My research interests focus on scene understanding, semantic SLAM, and new ways to incorporate semantics into reinforcement learning. I furthermore lead a project on new benchmarking challenges in robotic vision.

I regularly organise workshops at robotics and computer vision conferences, such as RSS, CVPR, and ICRA. I have been Associate Editor for the IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters journal (RA-L) since 2015, and served as AE for the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in 2018.
