Biography

Dr Giles Oatley’s background in cognitive science and AI informs his research expertise in modelling human behaviour, with a specific interest in the aspects of behaviour and personality that data can reveal. Dr Oatley’s current research covers health and sport informatics, crime informatics and sensor-based solutions for smart cities.

Giles’ health informatics work includes collaboration with engineering and nursing colleagues to develop smart textiles for people with dementia, for quality of life and non-invasive assessment of cognitive abilities. He continues to work in performance and sports injury analysis and has co-editing a textbook on Sports Data Analytics (Routledge, 2018).

Giles is Lecturer in information technology at Federation University Australia. He received his PhD in artificial intelligence from the University of Sunderland, UK in 2000 and was Reader (Associate Professor) in intelligent systems at Cardiff Metropolitan University before continuing his academic career in Australia since 2016.
