Alina Bialkowski is a signal processing and machine learning researcher at The University of Queensland, where she is developing algorithms to process data from large sensor networks in Intelligent Transportation Systems and Biomedical applications. She holds a PhD and BEng (Electrical Engineering) from the Queensland University of Technology, Australia. Her doctoral studies were in characterising group behaviours from visual and spatio-temporal data to enhance statistics and visualisation in sports analytics as well as intelligent surveillance systems. She spent a year at Disney Research Pittsburgh where she developed algorithms and tools to automatically analyse team sports, followed by 2.5 years as a postdoctoral researcher at the University College London, using deep neural networks to better understand human perception and attention in driving.
Alina's research interests are in extracting meaningful information from complex data through feature learning, spatio-temporal data modelling, and interactive visualisation.
