Biography

Dr. Peyman Moghadam is a Technical Entrepreneur, Scientist and Project Leader at the Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group CSIRO, Data61 and an Adjunct Professor at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT). Before joining CSIRO, he has worked in a number of top leading organizations such as the Deutsche Telekom Laboratories (Germany) and the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (Singapore). Dr. Moghadam is also Adjunct Senior Fellow at the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia.

In his recent role as the Spatiotemporal MLAI portfolio lead at CSIRO Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (MLAI) Future Science Platform, he overseas research and development of MLAI methods for scientific discovery for spatiotemporal data streams. Dr Moghadam has led several large-scale multidisciplinary projects and he has won numerous awards for his innovations including CSIRO Julius Career award, National and Queensland iAward for Research and Development, the Lord Mayor’s Budding Entrepreneurs Award. In 2019 he held a Visiting Scientist position at the Agricultural Robotics and Engineering group at the University of Bonn, as part of the CSIRO Julius Career Award. His current research interests include Self-Supervised Learning for Robotics, 3D multi-modal perception (3D++), robotics, computer vision, deep learning, and 3D thermal/hyperspectral imaging.
