I am now a Research Scientist at Amazon Alexa in Cambridge, MA. Prior to joining Amazon, I was a Senior Scientist at Philips Research North America and a Research Affiliate at MIT CSAIL. I also previously worked as a researcher at PARC, A Xerox Company in Palo Alto, California, USA.

I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Auckland in June 2013 under the supervision of Assoc Prof. Ian Watson. My PhD research focused on the use of artificial intelligence for strategy generation in computer games.

My previous research focused on the development and application of machine/deep learning algorithms to healthcare datasets, including electronic medical record data, physiologic waveforms and medical imaging. I started the IJCAI Workshop on Knowledge Discovery in Healthcare Data, which has been held annually at IJCAI since 2016.

I enjoy participating in competitive machine learning challenges. My team won first place at the 2020 PhysioNet / Computing in Cardiology Challenge and second place at the 2019 PhysioNet Challenge Hackathon. During my PhD, I created a suite of computer poker players, nicknamed Sartre, which earned 1 gold, 5 silver and 3 bronze medals at the 2011 and 2012 AAAI Computer Poker Competitions.
