Biography

I am a lecturer in the School of Computing and Information Systems at The University of Melbourne. I have received my PhD in 2017 from RMIT University, Melbourne under the supervision of Prof. Timos Sellis and A/Prof. Shane Culpepper. My research focuses on spatial databases, data visualization, trajectory queries, and applying machine learning techniques to solve spatial problems.
