Moving to the School of Cybernetics
Some job news—I’ve just accepted a position in the new School of Cybernetics in the ANU College of Engineering, Computing and Cybernetics. I’ll finish out my teaching this semester in the School of Computing then I’ll make the move in July. For those not familiar with the ANU org-chart or acronymicon, there are multiple Schools in each College (so I’m moving Schools but staying within the same College).

Configuring Spacemacs org-roam & org-noter for academic writing bliss
I’ve always had a decent memory, and so I’ve never really had a formal system for keeping track of who said what and in which paper.

As I get older my memory isn’t as sharp, so I think it’s time to use a more systematic workflow for writing—keeping notes about stuff I’ve read & linking the ideas together.

A call-up to fight covid19
As with many folks at the moment (both in Canberra and around the world) I’ve
been called up into a covid19 taskforce (an initiative of the ANU’s Software
Innovation Institute, in partnership with the RSCS &
other parts of the ANU). I’m the technical lead on the part of the project which
is trying to wrap up epidemiological simulation models into usable & robust
tools for seeing & understanding what the results of said models mean for the
Canberra health system. How can we predict what will happen, and how can we
manage our finite resources to deliver the best care possible—these are the
questions we need to answer as the world settles in for (perhaps) a long period
of on-and-off distancing & isolation. I’ll be able to share more details in the
future, so if you’re interested in that sort of thing then come back to check
for updates on this blog (I’ll use the

Here’s a photo of Kieran and I hanging out at CHI. I’ll write a more detailed trip report some other time, but from the general chats I had with people (and random unsolicited blog posts) it seems like the ritual started some conversations.
