My students

Easily the best part of being academic is working with research students!  I only list students here for which I am main supervisor.  Lots of excellent supervisors in Machine Learning at Monash, and I have the pleasure to support a few of the others too.

Current PhD students (as main supervisor, with publications):

  • Ming Liu: Monash. Supervisor for PhD Thesis, in progress from 2016.  Preliminary title “Active learning in latent variable models for biomedical text classification.” First paper at ALTA 2016.
  • Ethan Zhao: Monash. Supervisor for PhD Thesis, preliminary title “Bayesian Nonparametric Approaches for Modelling Complex Relational Data,” from 2016.  First paper at ICML 2017.

Former students (as main supervisor):

  • Kar Wai Lim: PhD at ANU. Supervisor for PhD Thesis, “Nonparametric Bayesian Topic Modelling with Auxiliary Data.” in 2016.  Now a postdoc at NUS, Singapore.
  • Changyou Chen: ANU. Supervisor for PhD Thesis “Dependent Normalized Random Measures,” from 2011, awarded 2014.  Postdoc September 2014 at Duke University.  Now faculty at SUNY Buffalo.
  • Swapnil Mishra: Supervisor for Master Thesis “Sparse and Hierarchical Topic Modeling.” Awarded 1st Class Honours, July 2014.  Now PhD student at ANU.
  • Aaron Li: ANU. Supervisor for Honours Thesis “Multi-GPU Distributed Parallel Bayesian Differential Topic Modelling,” awarded 1st class December 2012.  Did a masters at CMU and now in Silicon Valley USA with startups.
  • Lan Du: ANU. Supervisor for Doctoral Thesis “Non-parametric Bayesian Methods for Structured Topic Models,” awarded 2012. Did a postdoc with Prof Mark Johnson at Macquarie University, and now faculty at Monash University.
  • Novi Quadrianto: ANU. Supervisory panel member for Doctoral Thesis “ Learning for the Internet: Kernel Embeddings and Optimisation,” awarded 2011. Now faculty at Sussex, UK
