Researcher biography

I am a Professor of Artificial Intelligence in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at The University of Queensland, Meaanjin/Brisbane, Australia.

My research draws on machine learning, reinforcement learning, AI planning, interaction design, and cognitive science, to help people to make better decisions. I have done work on areas including explainable AI, human-AI planning, and human-centered decision support.

Prior to my appointment at The University of Queensland, Tim was a Professor of Computer Science in the School of Computing and Information Systems at The University of Melbourne, where I was founding co-director of The Centre for AI and Digital Ethics. I am an honorary professor at the University of Melbourne.

If you are an organisation applying artificial intelligence or looking to apply artificial intelligence, especially in south-east Queensland, please reach out. I am always interested to hear what organisations are currently doing, the opportunities and barriers in this space, and how the University of Queensland can help.
