Biography

I am currently a second year PhD student in chemical artificial intelligence at the Australian National University. My research aims to mimic human intuition in chemical deep learning models. Through the Future Leaders Program, I am currently undertaking a six month visiting researcher position at MIT in Boston.

I am a postgraduate teaching fellow at the Research School of Chemistry, and am passionate about communicating the potential, and the dangers, of artificial intelligence to a broad audience. In my spare time I enjoy philosophy, reading, powerlifting, and wilderness treks.
