Sabbatical stay at CSIRO and Macquarie University, Sydney Australia
Now I am here at my nine months sabbatical stay at CSIRO and Macquarie University in the Sydney suburb North Ryde. I have a office at CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation). CSIRO has many locations in Australia and over 5,000 employees. Macquarie university has 40,000 students and and 3,000 employees, half are academic and half are administrative. On Monday Nov 14, I gave a talk at the Department of Computing at Macquarie University with the title HEALTH BANK – A Workbench for Data Science Applications in Healthcare. My hosts are Dr Cecile Paris at CSIRO and Dr Diego Molla at Macquarie University. The sabbatical stay is funded by RJ, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.
