I hold a PhD in Mathematical Physics, obtained in 2003 from the Sao Paulo University, Sao Carlos, Brazil (Professor ES Bernardes) and from Warwick University, Coventry, UK (Professor Ian Stewart). I then held a post-doc and then a research fellow position at the Computer Vision group, led by Professor L da F Costa at the IFSC (Institute of Physics of Sao Carlos). From 2007 to 2010 I was a Senior Researcher at NICTA (Canberra Lab) and an Adjunct Researcher at The Australian National University (ANU) in the Machine Learning group, led initially by Dr Alex Smola, then by Dr Wray Buntine and Dr Tiberio Caetano. I have been working exclusively at the ANU since 2010 at the RSB/JCSMR with Dr Andrew James and Professor Ted Maddess, with neuroscience, developing multi-focal methods for early diagnosis systems for cognitive diseases. I have published many peer reviewed journal papers since my PhD, and acted often as referee for major publications in my fields of research. I have taught core disciplines of the Physics and the Applied Mathematics curriculum: Thermodynamics, Electromagnetism, and Advanced Engineering Mathematics for physicists and engineers. I also taught at the Summer Schools in Logic and Learning, Canberra 2009, see http://videolectures.net/marconi_barbosa/. One of my hobbies are Linux based computer clusters hardware and software, having built and managed them in the academic and research institutions I worked prior. To my knowledge at least 5 PhD theses were written in Australia using computational resources created and maintained by me. Numerically, I am very comfortable working with Matlab, C++ and Fortran2005.
