Professor Hanna Suominen is using advanced computing to ensure that "everybody, regardless of where they live or what their socioeconomic status is, can have that excellent health experience that each one of us deserves".
Professor Hanna Suominen juggles teaching responsibilities at ANU with Our Health In Our Hands (OHIOH), a strategic initiative of ANU applying advanced computing to healthcare and her duties at the John Eccles Institute of Neuroscience.
The Australian National University (ANU) welcomed new and returning students this week, as we get ready for Semester 2 2023.
As part of Orientation Week, or ‘O-Week’, the ANU College of Engineering, Computing and Cybernetics (...
Dr Minh Bui and Dr Robert Lanfear have been awarded the 2023 Eureka Prize for Excellence in Research Software for their genomics software IQTree2, which has the ability to synthesise enormous volumes of genetic data to map the evolutionary trees of biological entities.

“At my school, university is seen to be this very independent thing. But coming here made it feel like a lot more of an intimate experience, especially with Tjabal. It reaffirms in my head that uni isn’t as intimidating as it’s made out to seem.”
Indigenous high school students from around the country gathered in our bushland capital to visit ANU discovering the possibilities of engineering as a discipline, and experiencing university life.
World-leading academics and standout students from the Australian National University (ANU) recently joined esteemed alumni and friends in Singapore at an ANU Technology and Entrepreneurship Networking event....
“I see this course as being for my younger self,” said Professor Kylie Catchpole, a world-leading researcher in solar cell technology. "I cared a lot about the environment, but I didn't see myself as an environmental activist. I knew what I cared about, but I didn’t know how to do it, and that’s what I want to teach students.”
The course description promises a "wide range of ways of contributing to global challenges, helping you to find directions that fit with your strengths and interests and to develop a sense of agency and empowerment".
CECC 3MT candidates Dan Virah-Sawmy, Jonathan Ting, Fiona Yu, and Fazeleh Kazemian pose with judges Professor Chris Kellett, Dr Michael Norrish, and Professor Alex Zafiroglu; and Associate Dean Higher Degree Research Professor Dirk Pattinson.
Congratulations to PhD student Dan Virah-Sawmy, who won over both the judges and crowd at our recent 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) event for his engaging pitch on using sustainable technologies to save the Great Barrier Reef.
Ioana Ciucă and her research partner Yuan-Sen Ting came to ANU to explore the origins of our galaxy from the nexus of artificial intelligence and astronomy. Their findings have confirmed the remnant chemical imprint of a galactic collision 10 billion years ago, and spurred a global effort to enlist large language models as co-pilots in academic research.

Talei Elu discusses a prototype she created for a satellite beacon to be used in boating emergencies at the School of Cybernetics' Demo Day.
The Australian National University (ANU) cybernetics students presented cyber-physical systems as industry partners, collaborators and the wider community gathered on campus for Demo Day.
A coconut shell robot was among many dozens that attempted to complete mazes in "Discovering Engineering", an introductory course for students at ANU.
Student teams watched with hands clasped in prayer as their robot cars attempted to navigate mazes using sonar sensors to detect and avoid obstructions. To earn high marks, the robots would need to complete each of two mazes in under 3...
Professor Andrew Blakers speaks at a recent celebration of the 2023 Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering, awarded to him and his colleagues for the development of Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell (PERC) solar photovoltaic technology.
Professor Andrew Blakers has dedicated his life and career to creating innovative solutions that help tackle climate change.
Generative AI has the unique potential to transform education by making it more focused on the student, says Dr Bernardo Pereira Nunes of The Australian National University (ANU).
Today’s students can access a range of new technologies and generative AI. How can we apply these tools in the classroom?
“Improving efficiency of solar cells is really important because that directly drives the cost,” says Professor Kylie Catchpole. “If you want to use solar to make things like hydrogen to replace fossil fuels you need to bring down the cost of electricity.” Photo: Jamie Kidston/ANU
Solar energy is having its moment in the sun. What’s next for the technology that powers it and how do we get more people to use it? Making solar technology cheaper and more efficient is now a key focus for researchers, including Professor...
Alexander Ollman enjoyed the Capstone engineering course so much that he took it twice. Now he's returned to Capstone as a mentor aiming to design a remote piloting system for the long haul trucking industry.
When a kangaroo jumps in front of a semitrailer, who should make the course correction? A human driver? AI? How about a semi-autonomous piloting system controlled by a human operator thousands of kilometres away?
17 ANU-ASD Co-Lab Honours grant recipients were celebrated and welcomed into the program earlier this month. We had the opportunity to meet the group and learn about the CECC Honours projects of 2023.
“When you apply machine learning to a new industry, there is always a lot of uncertainty. It’s the not knowing that I love the most. It’s thrilling,” said Tanya Dixit, Master of Machine Learning and Computer Vision 2021.
Machine learning engineer Tanya Dixit ventured from India to Australia in 2019 to join one of the few graduate programs in the world focused squarely on machine learning.
She also wanted to reboot her life.
A festival-like atmosphere greeted prospective students, including opportunities to interact with a robot, artificial intelligence and virtual reality.
Future engineering, computing, and cybernetics students enjoyed a festival-like atmosphere at ANU Open Day, including interactions with a robot, artificial intelligence and virtual reality.
