I am Chief Investigator of the QUT Centre for Robotics where I lead the Visual Understanding and Learning Program. I am furthermore Chief Investigator of the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision, and a Senior Lecturer (roughly equivalent to an Associate 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, object-based semantic SLAM, robotic learning for navigation and interaction, uncertainty and reliability of deep learning in open set conditions. I furthermore lead a project on new benchmarking challenges in robotic vision.

I am very honoured that my work was recognised through a Google Faculty Research Award (2018) and an Amazon Research Award (2020).

I regularly organise workshops at robotics and computer vision conferences, such as RSS, CVPR, and ICRA. I am member of the editorial board for the International Journal of Robotics Research (IJRR), and co-chair of the Technical Committee on Computer and Roboti Vision of IEEE the Robotics and Automation Society. I was Associate Editor for the IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters journal (RA-L) from 2015 to 2019, and served as AE for the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) 2018 and 2020.
