Hi! I'm Nick.
I'm currently a Software Engineering student at the University of Queensland (UQ), where I've also picked up a Bachelor of Commerce (Finance) and a Bachelor of Science (Psychology).
I'm the president of the UQ Computing Society (UQCS), a tutor in UQ's faculty of Engineering, Architecture & IT, and a research assistant in UQ's Complex & Intelligent Systems Group, where I work on the Transcription Acceleration Project.
I used to work at ADLED, an LED Billboard company in sunny Brisbane, Australia.
I recently participated in the UQ Winter Research Scholarship Program in UQ's Social Robotics Lab (SRL) under the direction of Dr Gautier Durantin. I'll be joining the SRL again as a Summer Research Scholar from November to January under Professor Janet Wiles. From January I'll be participating in the UQ IdeaHub San Francisco Startup Adventure, where I'll be placed with Patchd, a start-up working to detect sepsis using Recurrent Neural Networks at their HQ in San Francisco's financial district.
Each year I set myself a challenge to read 50 books (though I rarely succeed), you can find out what I'm reading here.
