Short biography

Imran Razzak is a Senior Lecturer in Human-Centered Machine Learning in the School of Computer Science and Engineering at University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. Previously, he was as a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at School of IT, Deakin University, Victoria. His area of research focuses on connecting language and vision for better interpretation of multidimensional data and spans over three broad areas: Machine Learning, Computer Vision, and Natural Language Processing with special emphasis on healthcare and use of natural language to explain the rationale and decision-making process behind the use of machine learning algorithms and models. With a strong background in computer vision and deep learning techniques, he has developed expertise in analysing and interpreting medical images (US, mammogram, CT, PET, MRI, fMRI) to improve patient outcomes. Throughout his career, he has worked on a range of projects that involve developing and implementing machine learning algorithms for medical image analysis. His work has resulted in more than 200 publications citation in leading journals and conferences in the field of medical image analysis. Through his research, he has made significant contributions to the field of medical image analysis, particularly in the area of early diagnosis. Additionally, he has collaborated with medical professionals to develop tools for early diagnosis of various medical conditions, including cancer, neurodegenerative disease, and heart disease.

Research Interests

I'm passionate about Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing. My personal mission is to build AI-based solutions that solve high-impact problems for us to simplify our everyday living.

Dual-doctorate degree candidates/visiting students/visiting scholars in the areas of ML/Human-Centered AI are also welcomed
