From 2000 to 2004, while working on my PhD, I taught data processing and computational intelligence in the Department of Information Science at the University of Otago. Some of the lectures I presented are available here.
From 2004 to 2007 I was a post-doctoral fellow in the National Centre for Advanced Bioprotection Technologies (now the Bio-Protection Research Centre) at Lincoln University, New Zealand, where I developed intelligent methods for predicting the invasion and distribution of invasive insect crop pests. From 2007 to 2009 I was a post-doctoral fellow in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Sydney, where I again applied intelligent methods to predicting the distribution of the Australian plague locust. I worked in the Global Ecology Lab at the University of Adelaide from January 2010 to August 2012.
I am currently the Academic Head of Programme for Information Technology at Auckland Institute of Studies (AIS) in Auckland, New Zealand.
I have written or contributed to more than 70 publications in the field of computational intelligence and ecological modelling.
