Womin djeka! This is my personal—not an official RMIT—website. I’m a Lecturer and DECRA Fellow at RMIT University (School of Computing Technologies), a member of the Research Centre for Information Discovery and Data Analytics (CIDDA), and an Associate Investigator at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society.

My main research interests are Information Retrieval (IR), Text Analytics, and Data Science. I currently work on evaluation of information access systems and interactive information retrieval.

In my free time, I teach Capoeira at the Associação de Capoeira Descendente do Pantera (ACDP) –where I am also known as Estagiário Camaleão– and play samba with Wombatuque.

I acknowledge the people of the Woi wurrung and Boon wurrung language groups of the eastern Kulin Nation on whose unceded lands I live, work, teach, and learn. I respectfully acknowledge their Ancestors and Elders, past and present. I also acknowledge the Traditional Custodians and their Ancestors of the lands and waters across Australia.
