I am a researcher in the AI and Autonomy Lab at The University of Melbourne. My research area is in Explainable AI and Reinforcement Learning. My thesis explores how actions, behaviors and decisions of sequential decision making agents (e.g. reinforcement learning agents) can be explained using causal models.
I am also a tutor and a project supervisor in the School of Computer Science and Information Systems.
