Subjects I am/was Teaching


I am mainly teaching computer science courses such as:
  • COMP10001: Foundations of Computing (UniMelb)
  • DATA0006: Data Analytics with Python (UniMelb)
  • FIT5217: Natural Language Processing (Monash)
  • Statistical Machine Learning (UniMelb)
  • Web Search and Text Analysis (UniMelb)
  • Knowledge Technologies, or Introduction to Machine Learning (UniMelb)
  • Database Systems and Information Modelling (UniMelb)

I can also potentially teach ``Introduction to Algorithms'' or design a course on ``Formal Languages'', ``Multilingual NLP'', ``Technology for Field Research and Under-resourced Languages'', ``Machine Learning for Corpus Analysis''.

Poem (by Yosano Akiko)

その路をずつと行くと
死の海に落ち込むと教へられ、
中途で引返した私、
卑怯な利口者であつた私、
それ以来、私の前には
岐路と
迂路とばかりが続いてゐる。
