Student Projects Available

I am very interested in projects relating to Data Science, Human-centred Computing (involving computer vision and multimedia applications), Human-computer Interaction and the use of Virtual Reality for Healthy Living and Ageing at Home. I welcome applications from students (esp. Australians and PRs) who are interested in the above topics and have reputable academic publications. Good coding skills, knowledge of machine learning algorithms and most crucially self motivation are critical attributes if you would like to work with me. Cheers!
