Oliver's research interests include machine learning, neural networks and information theoretic approaches. He has experience in data analytics with applications in sensor networks, energy, astronomy, and robotics. He is an a member of the board of trustees of the RoboCup federation (an organisation to foster research and education in AI), and served as a PC member of scientific conferences such as NIPS, IJCAI, and AIStats.
Dr Yi Guo is a data scientist who received the B. Eng. (Hons.) in instrumenta- tion from the North China University of Technology in 1998, and the M. Eng. in  automatic control from Central South University in 2002. From 2005, he studied Computer Science at the University of New England, Armidale, Australia, focusing on di- mensionality reduction for structured data with no vectorial representation. He received a Ph.D. degree in 2008. Yi's research interests are Machine learning, computational statistics and data science.
Nick Tothill was educated in the UK, graduating with an MA in Physics from Cambridge, an MSc in Radioastronomy from Manchester, and a PhD in Astrophysics from Queen Mary College, University of London. He has worked in Germany (at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy), Canada (St Mary's University), the USA (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics), the UK (University of Exeter) and Australia (UNSW). Along the way, he spent a year at the South Pole, running a radio telescope. He joined WSU in 2011 as a Lecturer in the Computational Astrophysics, Imaging and Simulation group, and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2015. He became Director of WSU Penrith Observatory in 2018.
Professor Paul Hurley is a Professor of Data Science at ICNS. His research interests are mathematical signal processing, data science, algorithms, information theory medical imaging and radio astronomy interferometry.
