Graduated from PhD in Theoretical Physics / Complex Systems at University of Sydney, aimed to automate the characterisation of the human alpha rhythm to assist model development in EEG generation. Interested in time-series and spectral analysis algorithms and the associated deployment. Curious about the adversarial aspects of machine learning techniques, pathological cases in particular.

Current work in NeuRA focus on quantifying breathing during sleep and ways to automate the process.
